Making Connections - Seeing Links
Learners are often prevented from seeing mathematics as real, for them, because they do not readily make connections between the different topics they meet in the mathematics curriculum. So, in this session, we will work together on how, as teachers, we can help learners to see these connections. We will do this by exploring some of the big ideas/themes that run through the curriculum and see how the links within and between them can be made explicit. We will seek to identify how, in the teaching of conventional topics, an exploration of these links can help develop understanding and create an awareness of the richness and interconnectedness of mathematics.
