New Programmes and Work Groups for 2021-22
Schools and teachers within our hub area can choose from several types of projects. Each project has a focus on collaborative, evidence-based professional development. They all offer schools and teachers in all phases the chance to engage in CPD with colleagues from other schools over an extended period and are led by a locally-based expert.Find out more
CHECKPOINTS A year's worth of Year 7 maths activities to help teachers assess understanding and lay foundations for KS3
Getting Year 7 students off to a secure start in maths is important for the rest of their time in secondary school, especially when the pandemic has disrupted their primary school experience.
Checkpoints are diagnostic activities that will help teachers assess the understanding students have brought with them from primary school, and suggest ways to address any gaps that become evident.
There’ll be enough for three Checkpoints a week across the whole school year. They follow the themes covered in the NCETM sample KS3 curriculum framework.
CPD OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE FOR NON-SPECIALISTS TEACHING SECONDARY MATHS
This term, a programme designed to upskill non-specialists teaching maths in secondary schools is launching. The programme, ‘Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Secondary Non-specialists’, is for anyone who has maths lessons on their timetable, but who did not train as a maths teacher.
Aligned with the pedagogy behind teaching for mastery, the new programme will enable participants to explore six key themes: structure of the number system; operating on number; multiplicative reasoning; sequences and graphs; statistics and probability; and geometry. Working collaboratively with peers, and with expert input from an experienced secondary maths practitioner, participants will improve their subject, curriculum and pedagogical knowledge.Find Out More
Welcome to NNW Maths Hub, we are one of a network of 40 Maths Hubs in England, working together within the Maths Hub Programme, which began in 2014. The programme is funded by the Department of Education (DfE) and coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).
Children’s chances of succeeding in education and life will be maximised if they develop deep and lasting procedural and conceptual mathematical understanding.
