#### Teaching Mathematics in a DEIS setting

This interactive online workshop examined some of the factors that affect teaching learning and assessment in the Mathematics classroom. Through exploration of the Teaching for Robust Understanding (TRU) framework the workshop facilitated the design of rich tasks as a productive approach for engaging students with Mathematics and developing students’ Mathematical competencies.

#### Teaching Geometry for Understand Part 3: Coordinate Geometry

This online interactive workshop adopted an integrated approach to teaching coordinate geometry. The workshop explored ways in which students’ geometric thinking could be developed by using rich tasks to combine coordinate geometry, synthetic geometry and trigonometry.

#### Webinar Series – Teaching Mathematics in the Current School Context

This series of webinars explore approaches to teaching and learning in the current context. Full recordings of each webinar and links to the accompanying resources are available.

Webinar 1: Blended Teaching & Learning

Webinar 1

Webinar 1

The first webinar explored approaches to teaching Mathematics to support student learning in a blended learning environment and 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).

Webinar 2: Remote Teaching & Learning

Webinar 2

Webinar 2

The second webinar considered key elements for effective remote teaching and provided some examples of these in practice. Participants had the chance to ask questions of PDST advisors and these were answered live.

Webinar 3: Using GeoGebra to Support Blended Learning in Mathematics

Webinar 3

Webinar 3

The third webinar explored the use of GeoGebra to support students in developing a deeper understanding of Mathematical concepts and students taking greater responsibility for their learning. The value of rich Mathematical tasks, supported by the use of formative assessment techniques, was highlighted using examples from the Geometry strand.
