TEACH BY GRADE

TEACH BY CONCEPT

Scope and Sequences

Each grade has its own Scope and Sequence which allows teachers to teach, and students to learn, mathematical concepts in order of understanding, learning related concepts simultaneously.

6   7

 

 

 

 

Concept Sequences

Each concept has its own Concept Sequence which allows teachers to teach, and students to learn, mathematical concepts in order of understanding.

Each Concept Sequence provides explicit information and guidance, about when to bring in related concepts.

Teaching Plans

Every concept has sequential Teaching Plans.

The Teaching Plans for Number and Algebra concepts include information about essential prior, related and next learning and are divided into segments. Each segment has its own video, investigation and problem solving.
(Current teaching resources for Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability don’t yet have this page, nor are the videos, investigations and problem solving explicitly linked yet. They are being adapted and new versions will be uploaded as they become available.)

Videos

Each segment of the Number and Algebra concepts Teaching Plans has its own Video. (Current Videos for Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability don’t yet explicitly link to each segment of the Teaching Plans. They are being adapted and new versions will be uploaded as they become available.)

Teaching Plan PowerPoints

The Teaching Plan PowerPoint contains each segment of the Teaching Plan, the Investigations, Reflections and Problems that link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan, and more Investigations and Reflections that do not link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan.

Investigations and Reflections

The Investigations and Reflections explain how to guide students through the investigation process, then allow them to investigate independently, and to reflect often on their understanding, and contain Investigations and Reflections that link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan and more Investigations and Reflections that do not link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan.

Problems that link explicitly to a Teaching Plan segment are also included.

Problem Solving

Problem Solving explains the purpose of problem solving is to develop understanding of problem solving, and capacity to solve problems – not to solve a specific problem today.

It provides information about differentiating problems by creating different levels of the same problem to suit the different problem solving understandings and capacities of the students in the class.

It provides information about creating 3 levels of a problem, and guiding students through solution following the problem solving steps, allowing them to attempt to solve the final level independently. It suggests that students then create their own problem. (For further information and a video explaining this problem solving process, see the ‘Problem Solving’ banner on the home page of the website.)

 It contains Problems that link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan, and more Problems that do not link explicitly to a segment on the Teaching Plan.

Each Problem has its answer, and a hint for creating new problems.

The Problem Solving PowerPoints provide 3 levels of each problem, and advice about guiding students through solution following the problem solving steps, allowing them to attempt to solve the final level independently. It suggests that students then create their own problem.
