Maths Workshops in Banchory Revised Start Date of 3 March 2018


With Lorna Alexander and Elspeth Somerville

Targeting parents, primary teachers, secondary maths teachers and SFL staff, these talks will explore the potential obstacles to progression in maths with an overview of the difficulties faced; investigate what hinders progression; discuss thinking/learning styles and propose multi sensory strategies for both classroom and home support as well as discussing the value of error analysis in order to put in place strategies to overcome observed errors.

While this is aimed at supporting young people with Specific Learning Difficulties, there will be a range of strategies appropriate to those with no identified difficulty but who are experiencing issues with progression in maths.
