The Maths Development Team are delighted to announce that we will continue to support teachers in their professional development through Lesson Study. All teachers who participated last year – we look forward to seeing you back discussing how to teach maths effectively. Any teachers who haven’t participated – come along to our three-day induction training from September 27th – 29th 2017. To make it easier for you to attend we’re going to hold induction training at three regional venues – Dublin, Limerick and Carrick-on-Shannon.
250+ maths teachers from 100+ schools across Ireland participated in our lesson-study programme this year. Over the course of the programme, teachers collaborated with colleagues from their own school and with teachers from other schools to design lessons which target the aims of the maths syllabus. Their work was showcased at our biggest Maths Counts Conference to date. Over 400 teachers attended and, in a first for Ireland, saw maths teachers from Ireland teach their students live. All the lessons that were developed are now available for teachers to download.
Transform your whiteboard using our vast array of background templates. Never draw a crooked x-y axes again and access many more backgrounds to enhance your teaching of probability, statistics, geometry, coordinate geometry, trigonometry, fractions, area & volume, sequences & series, financial maths, patterns, algebra, functions, calculus and much much more.
Algebra Through the Lens of Functions is a brand new resource for teaching algebra in a way which connects with patterns and functions. As a bonus, there’s also an accompanying student workbook and interactive PowerPoint for displaying on your whiteboard.
The new Census @ School student questionnaire for 2016/2017 is now available here. Using real data can help deepen students’ understanding of statistics and help them to see the relevance of statistics in today’s world. Learn to use Census @ School with our step-by-step teacher guide.
Use these videos to enhance your students understanding of theorems and constructions in Geometry. See how a variety of theorems and constructions are connected and get ideas for helping you students understand Geometry for themselves.
Teachers from across Ireland have been involved in the design and teaching of their own problem-solving lessons through the Reflections on Practice initiative. All this hard work produced 25 lesson plans which teach a wide variety of mathematical concepts via structured problem-solving. These 25 lessons were presented by participating teachers at Maths Counts 2016. You can access all the lessons on our Maths Counts 2016 page.
