2. Mindset for Maths – Exploring the concepts of growth mindset in the maths classroom.
3. Making Maths Count – Lesson structures, planning, questioning.
4. Making the Grade – Looking at assessment.

What the teachers are saying about the programme:

I enjoyed the course as it encouraged me to think about my teaching and how to improve. The interactions with other maths teachers and sharing good practice was very good!

Variety of content and materials was excellent. The fact I could immediately take some into the classroom and share with faculty made an impact immediately

Plenty of opportunity to discuss techniques, strategies, policies and ideas with both primary and secondary teachers.

Sessions will be held at The Dean Trust Teaching School and run between 9am and 12.30pm.  Light refreshments will be provided during the morning and a packed lunch will be provided for delegates as they leave to return to school.
