NRICHing the curriculum: Embedding fluency, reasoning & problem solving
Dates: 11 January 2018, 20 March 2018, 10 July 2018
This free three-day programme offers experienced KS 2, 3 or 4 classroom teachers the opportunity to further develop the teaching and learning of mathematics in their classrooms. It has been specially designed to reflect the three key aims of the mathematics curriculum: fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving.
By the end of the programme, delegates will be able to maximise the potential of rich mathematical resources to enhance their classroom teaching across different age groups and attainment levels. The programme will focus on effective strategies to:
- work with free, high-quality, engaging resources to meet the key aims of the UK mathematics curriculum;
- support and develop your students' mathematical confidence, resilience, inquiry and reasoning;
- implement Ofsted's recommendation to increase problem-solving across the curriculum.
The programme will be delivered as three linked one-day events over the course of the 2017-18 school year, starting in January 2018.
Day 1: 11 January 2018
Day 2: 20 March 2018
Day 3: 10 July 2018
Between the training days, delegates will be expected to try out carefully selected gap tasks with their students and share their findings at the next event. Participants must therefore be able to attend all three days of the programme.
Eligibility and how to book:
The programme is aimed at teachers of mathematics at KS 2, 3 or 4. Thanks to generous support from Trinity College, Cambridge, we can offer free places to teachers at UK state schools and academies.
