Workshop: Financial Maths

This online two-hour event will explore teaching approaches that can be used to meet the learning outcomes of the Leaving Certificate syllabus commonly referred to as Financial Maths.  Rather than being treated as a standalone topic, we will explore how to support students to apply their understanding of sequences and series to model annuities, mortgages and other financial products. As part of this, problem solving and visual approaches will be emphasised.

 Information Webinar: Whole-School Numeracy

This webinar will support teachers to develop students’ numeracy skills by following the SSE process in implementing a whole-school numeracy plan. It will explore options for meaningfully integrating numeracy into the fabric of lessons across a range of subjects. The benefits of this approach compared to one which relies on numeracy moments will be explored.

  • Introducing quadratic relationships through growing patterns.
  • Investigating the key properties of different function families through the use of multiple representations.
  • Developing algebraic skills while investigating relations, functions, inverse functions and transformations of functions.
