Trainer: Sara Tilley
In this course we will dig deep into problem-solving and reasoning and explore the challenges that children face in Key Stage 1. We will:
- Explore the similarities and differences between problem-solving and reasoning
- Unpick the barriers to learning that KS1 might have when asked to problem solve and reason
- Consider a range of manipulatives and images which encourage children to communicate mathematically
- Consider a range of pedagogical strategies which will support building the skills of problem-solving and reasoning
This area of maths can be tricky to teach but you will leave this course with lots of ideas which you can take back and try in your classroom.
