Title: Topics in Depth / Asking Better Questions
Presenters: Jo Morgan and Ed Southall
Summary: For our third session of the year we are very lucky to have two sessions led by two fantastic maths teachers. Jo is a Lead Practitioner at Harris Federation in London. She writes the website Resourceaholic where she shares teaching ideas and resources for secondary mathematics. Jo is a member of the TES Maths Panel and AQA Expert Panel and a regular guest on Mr Barton's podcast. Jo's workshop is about the process of teaching a topic in depth. The focus will be on index notation and index laws. In this session, teachers will reflect on their approaches, consider misconceptions and best practice, and discover new resources to use in their lessons.
Ed has taught in education for 14 years in a variety of roles and is currently the PGCE course leader at Huddersfield University, and a maths education specialist for both Primary and Secondary teacher training. He is currently studying for a PhD and is the author of two books, "Yes, But Why: Teaching for Understanding in Mathematics" and 'Geometry Snacks' with Vincent Pantaloni. Ed blogs at SolveMyMaths . Ed's session will look at "Asking Better Questions". Enhanced subject knowledge can lead to stronger, deeper questions that allow for teachers to uncover more misconceptions and analyse how much students understand topics beyond algorithms.
