LivMS Event:


CPD session for primary teachers with Lisa Baggaley mailto:lisa.baggaley@si.liverpool.gov.uk

The bar model can support children to develop conceptual understanding of mathematics as it involves using concrete apparatus and pictorial images to represent a problem and helps them to explain their thinking and visualise how to solve it.
This session aims to explore how we can use the bar modelling approach to support problem solving and mathematical understanding across the primary age range.

CPD session for secondary teachers with Sue Harkness mailto:sharkness.55@gmail.com

The new GCSE places more emphasis on proportional reasoning. Many students find fractions decimals percentages and ratio baffling. The bar modelling gives students a visual model as an entry point to these topics helping them to understand what they are tying to find and how to go about finding it. These often get clouded when algorithms for solving these problems are introduced too early.
This session aims to explore how we can use the bar modelling approach to support problem solving and mathematical understanding with the emphasis on developing proportional reasoning skills.

Both sessions
