Masterclasses for very able mathematicians and accompanying teachers.

The masterclasses will focus on challenging mathematical problem solving and deeper thinking and will give children the opportunity to construct and develop their own understanding of mathematics, making links and connections between concepts. Children will develop and enhance their ability to use their mathematical knowledge appropriately, flexibly and creatively and to apply it in new and unfamiliar situations.

The workshop will also provide a professional development opportunity for primary teachers as each school sending pupils will also be able to send a member of staff to observe and participate. Over lunch there will be the opportunity for teachers to discuss mathematics teaching with Aileen Hoare, Director of NWGT, who will be leading the day.

Children will need to bring: a pencil, ruler, whiteboard and pen and lunch. Drinks and biscuits will be provided for both teachers and children.
