Out of Field Support Days for junior maths, Queensland

March 11 @ 8:00 am - March 12 @ 4:00 pm

$285.00 – $500.00

Teaching maths to junior high school students is tricky at the best of times, let alone when you have limited experience or training in that area. Feeling frustrated or overwhelmed is very common. This course has been designed in consultation with heads of department from across Australia to support you.

This course will help you to:

  • develop confidence in your own understanding and teaching of the connections between: integers, fraction operations, exponents, algebra, multiplicative and proportional reasoning, probability and relative frequency, area/volume formulas, Pythagoras and deductive geometry
  • know what to look for in student answers, including common misconceptions, and know how to help
  • differentiate for students without driving yourself crazy and re-engage those who hate maths
  • unpack assessment requirements (including both test design and the proficiency strands)

Come along to either day, or both days, depending on your own needs.
Leave at 2:30 if you don’t need the afternoon session.

When: Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th March, 8:00-4:00.

Where: Father Bernard O’Shea Inservice Centre, 19 Lovedale St, Wilston QLD 4051

Cost: $285 for a single day, or $500 for both days. Limited to 45 teachers.

Before the course: you will be sent an optional diagnostic test to use with your students

After the course: you will be sent “how to” instructions or videos for the concepts covered, guides for making judgements (A-E criteria), diagnostics
