This one-day workshop will explore the Singapore approach to teaching maths and how it can meet the needs of children who are struggling with maths.
The day will focus on the five core elements of the Singapore Approach. These five core elements are metacognition, visualization, number sense, generalisation and communication. Each will be explored together with practical strategies such as bar modelling, the use of ten frames, Cuisenaire rods and other appropriate manipulatives.
The workshop will be very hands on with plenty of practical ideas and activities and will be suitable for anyone who works with children experiencing difficulties in Maths.
It will address both primary and secondary phases.
