Developing Reasoning – Extended Pedagogical and Subject Knowledge Enhancement

One of the challenges in mathematics teaching is supporting children to reason about their mathematics: notice things, use what they know, make connections and make decisions. Developing reasoning is about developing mathematical thinkers. Reasoning is at the heart of mathematics and is increasingly being focussed on in tests and exams.

Research shows that one of the features of professional development that is likely to improve outcomes for children is that it is sustained over time.*
We are providing the opportunity for teachers to participate in an extended professional development package, focused on developing reasoning, which will run throughout 2017/8.
