Maths Concepts in the Wider Curriculum Context - Figuring out where numeracy equals learning

"Mathematical fluency and confidence in numeracy are regarded as preconditions of success across the national curriculum." OFSTED indicator in the research model used to inform the content of their most recent handbook for schools

Mathematics does not just stand alone as a subject. There is a myriad of examples of where Maths is integral to deepening knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.

This course looks at how to ensure the curriculum design focuses on where number and Maths are integral to learning in subjects other than in Maths lessons. We look at ways Numeracy Co-ordinators and those with responsibility for Maths teaching can work more closely with colleagues to ensure there is a profound awareness of the importance of making the connections from concepts taught in Maths to context within other subjects.

  • Ho do subject leaders and teachers across the school make explicit the numeracy and Maths skills that are integral to learning in their subject?
  • Do Maths specialists and teachers know where number is used to develop deeper subject knowledge across the curriculum?
  • Are there opportunities to share ideas, focus on common language, methodology and pedagogy and make connections between the theory and the practice?
  • To what extent do learners confidently apply the numeracy skills they learn in Maths in the context of learning across a range of subjects?
  • Are teachers able to assess the quality of numeracy learning in their subject?
  • How do teachers and managers from all subjects communicate the skills they are using and share how they teach number skills in order to support greater synergy and aid learner understanding?

This event will focus on:-

  • Defining the roles and responsibilities of a Numeracy Coordinator
  • Focusing on where numeracy is integral to learning and can support the development of learners’ problem solving, reasoning and analytical skills
  • Creating opportunities to look at numeracy specifics and how to support subject specialists other than Maths teachers develop their own deeper understanding of how to enhance the numeracy skills of learners
  • Building a suite of learning opportunities for teachers of subjects other than Maths
  • Planning a strategy for ensuring all teachers are confident and have the skills to highlight where numeracy skills are inherent in their teaching and can support learners to become more confident and unconsciously competent in their use of number
  • Win hearts and minds, create a strategy that is embraced by all staff and give learners the skills that support them to become highly competent in how and where number skills enhance the learning process.

Who should attend?

This event is of particular interest to those who have been given the role of Numeracy Coordinator. It will also be very valuable for other managers or teachers who have a specific responsibility for embedding numeracy across the curriculum such as Heads of Maths or Teaching and Learning Managers. This event may also be useful for those with responsibility for CPD or staff development who would be able to use the materials and learning from the day to develop further training for colleagues back in school.

"Pupils are able to apply mathematical knowledge, concepts and procedures appropriate for their age in a range of contexts"

OFSTED November 2019

For schools in Wales this event will enhance the work of the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework and offer a practical guide for Numeracy Coordinators to ensure that they can support teachers and managers from across the school to weave number within their teaching where it naturally occurs and where it can enhance learning.

We run this event in parallel with our event 'The Role of the Literacy Coordinator', why not take advantage of our second delegate rate and send both your Literacy and Numeracy Coordinators along. The opportunities for them to work together is highly effective.

All our events are centrally located in prestigious venues. Registration and refreshments are available from 9.30am for a 10.00am start, and we will finish around 3.30-4.00pm. We always provide a sumptuous lunch.
