S1 MATHS: PARENT/CARER OPPORTUNITY

In the Mathematics Department we have worked very hard over the last two years to develop our teaching methods to support genuine understanding of Maths.

To that end I'd like to offer you the chance to be part of a series of virtual meetings where we will go through some of the methods we use in S1 (and build on in S2, S3, etc) and how we try to put it across to our classes.

Hopefully this insight will help de-mystify what we do in the Maths Department and open up a positive dialogue at Home about the Maths being learned - no more arguments because "it wasn't taught like that in my day!".

 

Sessions will run on 3 dates as follows:

  • Monday 11 January 2021, 6 - 7pm: we will look at how we use two-colour counters to teach 'negative numbers'
  • Monday 1 February 2021, 6 - 7pm: we will look at solving equations
  • Monday 1 March 2021, 6 - 7pm: we will look at the 'grid method' and why it is so useful for multiplication, division and algebra!
