Weekly maths problems to support blended learning in KS3
These PowerPoint presentations are intended to support teachers and students with a blended approach to learning, either in-class or online. The tasks are intended to form part of a learning journey and could be the basis of either one lesson or a short sequence of connected lessons.
Teachers should delete, change, and add slides to suit the needs of their students. Extra slides with personalised prompts and appropriate examples based on previous teaching may be suitable. When changing the slide-deck, teachers should consider:
–Their expectations for the use of representations such as bar models, number lines, arrays, and geometric diagrams.
–Which strategies and methods students should use and record when solving problems or identifying solutions. This could include a range of informal jottings and diagrams, the use of tables to record solutions systematically and formal or informal calculation methods.
Teachers may also wish to record a ‘voice over’
to talk students through the slides.
The HIAS secondary maths team will provide a
problem of the week for Years 7, 8 and 9 throughout the Spring Term (2021) to
support blended teaching and learning.
