The Mathematician's Workshop
We believe that all students need to experience high-quality teaching to ensure maximum learning. The Mathematician’s workshop model is based on high impact teaching strategies.
Let's talk about Maths!
We know that through dicusssion students conceptual understanding becomes stronger. Out classrooms are environments where studetns and teachers talk to each other about ideas –
Some common questions asked in our classrooms are:
Why did I choose this method?
Does it work with other cases?
How is the method similar or different to methods other people used?
Are there any other ways to solve this problem?
Rigorous and continuous assessment underpins all of the work we do. Our practice involves the provision of effective feedback to students and active involvement of students in their own learning.
All teachers use assessment to make adjustments to teaching. At Bourchier we recognise the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of students, both of which are crucial influences on learning, the need for students to be able to assess themselves and understand how to improve is an essential component of our assessment practices.
We want to ignite a passion for mathematics. We work hard to make sure all students re engaged in practical, hands on tasks that they genuinely care about and help engage them in the mathemaitcs.
Real World Contexts
We want our students to be able to apply their learning and their own daily lives and through rich, authentic learning experiences we help learners see how learning mathematics can help them better understand thier world.
We know that what students believe about their own mathematical ability can have a huge impact on learning. We work hard to make sure everyone sees themsleves as mathematicians!
We want all students to believe:
Everyone can do well in math.
Mathematics problems can be solved with many different insights and methods.
Mistakes are valuable, they encourage brain growth and learning.
Mathematics will help them in their lives, not because they will see the same types of problems in the real world but because they are learning to think quantitatively and abstractly and developing an inquiry
relationship with math.
The inclusion of the proficiencies of understanding, fluency, problem-solving and reasoning in the curriculum is to ensure that student learning and student independence are at the centre of the curriculum.
We focus on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving skills. These proficiencies enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematical strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently. Please have a look at teh video below for an introduction into each of the mathematical proficincies.
