Traditional style of Maths teaching


Create folders for your math groups.

Each week save the files into those folders that students will use

Each student will then open the file and 'Save As' back to their own personal folder. Older students should have curriculum named folders in their own personal folder.

My Maths task board looks like this with 3 groups, and I always demonstrate the activity with the children before I send them off to do it.

Here are some examples of maths activities I might do with them


Examples of e-Learning

Develop the resources for each topic and set tasks for students as illustrated in the Area, Perimeter Volume example below.

Area, Perimeter and Volume

These are resources I developed for a Year 5 and 6 class.
Students did the pretest and in consultation we analysed and decided what their learning needs were.
Students then had to organise their learning time, taking into account that their assessment task would take at least 2 days.
Students could then work their way through the activities according to what were their major needs (Area, Perimeter or Volume)
It was compulsory to complete a certain number of tasks for each section.
Each task clearly stated what could be used to complete it. There was a variety of equipment available.

These are the workshops that I started off with students and they continued to run them. They played through a projector and students managed and ran them. Students had their maths books and they did the activities together both in their books and on the screen. Students could choose to opt in or they might have been suggested to attend by me. I was able to work around the classroom with individuals and keep an eye on the workshop as well. If I saw a problem at the workshop I would step in, otherwise I worked with individuals, pairs or groups as needed.

The following Measurement Workshop was created for a Year3/4 class
