SAS - Everyone a Problem Solver - (Stroud Association Schools Only)*

Event Code MATH/21/351
Event type Online Training / Teaching & Learning
Event Description

Course for Stroud Association Schools only.


Word problems are one of the many applications children can use to problem solve and reason about their Mathematics, forming two of the three main aims of the National Curriculum.



There have been many recent articles looking at alternative, more effective approaches to RUCSAC. At the same time, we have seen much written about the ‘Word Gap’ (Alex Quigley) and how early attention to vocabulary acquisition can support strong foundations across the Curriculum. Children require an understanding of 95% of a word problem to enable them to successfully attempt a question*.
Using infographics, goal free and number less problems pupils can be engaged to discuss what the problem might be and at the same time the teacher is creating a stimulus for great mathematical conversation. By removing the ‘words’ or the question or reducing the information and just use images, pupils anxiety of word problems can be reduced.



This course will support all teachers in KS1 and KS2, teaching assistants and subject leaders.
