## Inquiring into the Square Metre

Inquiring into the Square Metre There is a common misconception that a square metre has to be square in shaped. When children are introduced to square centimetres and square metres, its easy to understand how this misconception grows. This post aims to deepen their conceptual understanding. It suggests by constantly having children use square cm and square m as a unit of measurement, are we denying them from really understanding how surface area is a measurement of space rather than a measurement of number of square cm.

## A new way of teaching maths in schools

A study has looked at a new way of teaching mathematics in primary and secondary school classrooms, and its ability to enhance learning. The study explored a unique way of delivering a lesson on fractions where teachers provide students with challenging maths tasks to work on by themselves or in a group, rather than being instructed on specific solutions. The project found students preferred to work out solutions for themselves, and determine their own strategies for solving problems, rather than following instructions they have been given. The approach could lead to changes to how teachers currently plan their teaching in mathematics.

## Make Reasoning A Routine In Math Classrooms – Matthew Oldridge – Medium

Mathematics classrooms should be places of talking, thinking, conjecturing, and wondering. They should be open spaces, always, for students to think mathematically, about interesting problems, and through open questions, tasks, and investigations. Students will always surprise us with the power of their thinking, if we let them.

## How to promote real inquiry in mathematics classrooms

Inquiry teaching takes another route to learning, as it is largely inductive and demands questions from the learners for it to thrive. Questions are promoted with further questions, one answer by a learner is followed by another question probing understanding, questions are focused on concept formation and the learners are leading the learning by virtue of their own curiosity.

## 11 Strategies for Teaching English Learners in Math – Inspired Ideas

One of the best things you can do for a young English learner is to create a safe, thoughtful, flexible space in which their learning needs are addressed and met. The classroom absolutely must be a place where teachers have the time and patience to slow down when language variation makes concepts more difficult than they would be otherwise. Most importantly, learning spaces should reflect a great degree of respect for English learners, an appreciation of their perspectives, and a eagerness to include them in all facets of the collective learning journey: socially, emotionally, and intellectually.

## Multiplication Strategies - From Concrete to Visual to Symbolic

This 3 act math task was designed with the idea of accessing student prior knowledge of multiplication and then connecting that knowledge to division including the use of open area models, repeated subtraction and then connecting these to a flexible division algorithm that is considered to be a more accessible algorithm for use by students with varying abilities. This task connects to a wide range of grade levels. For a full detailed list of specific expectations from primary, junior and intermediate grades.
