This is the fourth in a series of workshops designed for school leaders of Mathematics from P – 10. It will build upon prior work undertaken in previous workshops but will be productive for first time attendees. Workshops will take place once a term in the South, North and North-West. This will be an opportunity for Coordinators to meet and work on: unpacking the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics; assessment and moderation; common assessment tasks; challenging tasks; scope and sequence documents; using the Numeracy Learning Progressions; creating and improving inquiry cycles; using and analysing data; and sharing resources.
As a result of participating in the course, Mathematics Coordinators will:
- Increase their curricula knowledge in key areas of Mathematics with particular emphasis on embedding the mathematical proficiencies of problem-solving and reasoning into unit and lesson planning and teaching;
- Improve their pedagogical content knowledge in relation to developing problem-solving cultures in their classrooms;
- Be introduced to quality resources to support the development of problem-solving and reasoning in their planning; and
- Develop and build leadership capacity within the Mathematics learning area.
