About Blended Learning

Blended learning is learning that takes advantage of both face-to-face and complimentary e-learning opportunities. The adoption of blended learning should ideally exploit the capacity of technology to promote active and participative learning in both face-to-face and online contexts.

This page gathers together ideas, resources and tools relevant to using blended learning to teach maths.

Teaching Calculus for Understanding

There is also a unit of learning for introducing calculus to students. This page is designed to explore approaches for distance learning in mathematics and includes video tutorials which explore:

    • key features of the lessons which make for effective distance learning
    • how to use a learning management system effectively
    • getting set up on your learning management system

Webinar – Teaching Mathematics in the Current School Context

This webinar explored approaches to teaching Mathematics to support student learning in a blended learning environment. The webinar included input from a panel of practising Maths teachers who have experience of implementing such approaches. The panelists were Aidan Roche (Coláiste Bríde SS, Enniscorthy), Joe Geraghty (St Gerald’s DLS College, Castlebar) and Yvonne Marley (Old Bawn CS, Dublin).
