Dialogic teaching, a term created by Dr Robin Alexander in the early 2000s, harnesses the power of talk to stimulate and extend students’ thinking and advance their learning and understanding.

This week’s blog is a continuation of my reflections on MANSW’s PreK-8 conference held in March 2021. The first blog Noticing the mathematics: Making the connections Part 1 shared insights and lessons learnt from the two Friday masterclasses. Part 2 will share some of the ideas gathered from Saturday workshops I attended and the morning…

As a new year begins, planning and programming are often the focus for classroom teachers. It’s a time to try new things, adapt what has worked before, and think about what makes a great lesson. For mathematics, as with any subject area, flexibility is the key. Catherine Attard (@attard_c) provided some good advice regarding lesson…

When teaching writing to our students we provide time for planning. When teaching writing to our students we also allow for drafting and re-drafting of ideas, paragraphs, and plot lines. How often do we allow students to revise their thinking or work in mathematics? How often do we allow students a second or third revision…

This blog is the first of two reflections on the annual MANSW (Mathematical Association of NSW) conference. This year’s theme was “Mathematics: The Greatest Show” and it didn’t disappoint! What an amazing conference, ever year it gets bigger and better and the calibre of presentations and keynotes was out of this world! (I should save…

We have slow TV, slow fashion and even slow food, but what about slow teaching?

I thought it would be good to highlight some of the ‘buzz words’, concepts or ideas that are having an impact in mathematics classrooms. When planning for mathematics at this time of the year, spend the…

Student voice in mathematics, and the teacher’s ability to create opportunities for mathematical discourse focused on students’ ways of thinking and working, is at the heart of quality teaching.

The Mathematical Association of NSW’s (@MathsNSW) annual Pre K-8 conference was held last Friday and Saturday. What a wonderful opportunity it was to meet up with other teachers and educators to chat and learn about mathematics. Last year the conference was unable to go ahead so it’s been a while since could meet together face-to-face…
