||3 WORKSHOPS: 30th July, 13th August, 3rd September
Are you aware that in any given year level, there is a five to six-year difference between the most advanced and the least advanced 10% of students? In some subjects, the gap might even be larger. RMIT University researcher Dianne Siemon has found a six to eight-year gap in middle-school maths classes.
• What to do about this?
• How to find out which students are struggling, and with what? Which students are not stretched, and may be failing to reach their potential?
MASA is presenting three 3 hour workshops to support mathematics teachers of students in years 4 – 8 gain strategies that will assist them to target their teaching to what students are ready to learn next.
The workshops will link strategies freely available from Di Siemon’s research with those promoted by Tierney Kennedy to support teachers to differentiate their maths classes so all students experience mathematical success.
