Manipulatives allow students to see the structure of mathematics enabling them to understand why our algorithms work and adapt their learning accordingly.  It improves retention of areas such as directed numbers, factorising, expanding brackets, completing the square and many more.  They are effective at all levels of secondary school in terms of developing an understanding of mathematics.

The aim of this work group is to:

  • train secondary teachers in the use of a range of manipulatives to a standard so that manipulatives can be used confidently in lessons
  • train secondary teachers in the use of a range of manipulatives models to a standard so that manipulative techniques can be shared with colleagues and disseminated through the department.

What is involved: The Work Group will comprise 4 sessions 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm.  There is no charge to attend this event.

Funding: Our DfE grant, via the NCETM, allows BBO Maths Hub to provide this training free-of-charge to delegates.  In addition delegates will be provided with photocopyable manipulative to use in their schools
