Part 2  /  Teaching Plans for Maths Methods Workshop with Jim Potter

Saturday 8th September 9am-11.30am

Past exam questions have a value that goes far beyond student revision and ready-made test questions.

With a little preparation they can successfully be incorporated into teaching plans and strategies for many topics. This workshop will concentrate on their use in developing ideas for the teaching of ‘Sampling and Confidence Intervals’.

Having Fun with Data Saturday Workshop 

with Desiree Gilbert

for Teachers of F-3, Annesley Junior School

28 Rose Terrace, Wayville

Statistics and statistical thinking have become increasingly important in a society that relies more and more on information and demands for evidence… a natural environment for learning statistical thinking is through experiencing the process of collecting data, exploring data and commenting on data.” (AMSI, 2011)

In F–3, the focus on data representation and interpretation is on gathering and organising simple information and creating and interpreting simple representations of data.

This workshop will engage teachers in practical and enjoyable learning experiences that focus on understanding, problem solving and reasoning and aim to raise awareness of statistical data investigation processes. The learning experiences shared will focus on collaborative and active learning and will also utilise and challenge students understanding and application of number knowledge and understanding
