Comments from teachers who have implemented this approach in 2019

“Teachers are more confident in extending children’s ideas through questioning.”

“Children are looking for patterns, questioning ideas without being prompted!”

“Children of all abilities are now participating and are now more willing to share ideas and thoughts.”

Course Outline

The term elegant solution is used in mathematics to refer to a solution that solves the problem in the simplest and most effective manner.
This course aims to strengthen the teaching of reasoning and problem solving to include:

  • the why – proof and justification
  • the why not – counter examples and reasoned argument
  • the what if – conjecture and critical thinking

Key Outcome:

  • Delegates will have enhanced their knowledge of effective strategies for teaching reasoning and problem solving resulting in improved outcomes for pupils.
  • Subject leaders will have a clear overview of the progression in reasoning and problem solving.

Take aways from the course:

  • Examples of greater depth tasks and questions from science and all foundation subjects
  • Example planning frameworks
  • Assessment advice
  • Examples of pupils work to help you create your own moderation materials
