PDST 2-Part Problem Solving with Measures Workshop
(Length, Area, Weight, Capacity, Time, Money)
Workshops May 2016 - Suitable for all Primary Teachers
As teachers, we know that pupils often struggle with the real-life problem solving demands of measurement. These two hands-on workshops will help teachers develop pupils’ conceptual understanding of measurement, through engagement in child-centred activities, enabling pupils to communicate, reason and solve practical measurement problems, in real-life contexts.
Opportunities for home-school linkage in measures will also be explored as well as a range of assessment strategies.
Workshop 1: Explore how pupils develop their conceptual understanding of Length, Area and Weight, followed by engaging in a range of practical activities, examining the opportunities for genuine linkage and integration of measures across the curriculum.
Workshop 2: This follow-on workshop explores how pupils develop their conceptual understanding of Capacity, Time and Money. The practical activities are designed to engage all pupils in seeing the real-life application of measures. Finally, teachers will examine a range of methods to assess pupils’ ability to reason and problem solve in measures.
Kildare Education Centre dates: Workshop 1 - Tues 10th May & Workshop 2 - Tues 17th May 2016 (4.15pm-6.45pm)
