"Maths Doesn't Have to Hurt"

Announcements

 Online Workshop Webinars with Rob Vingerhoets and Michael Minas
Warm-Ups to Kick Off Your Lessons!

Warm-ups. They almost sound innocuous, but they certainly aren’t!
In maths – as in most teaching – it is vital to get the lesson off to a great start. An effective, engaging, and mathematically worthwhile warm-up establishes momentum right from the outset of the session.

Warm-ups form an integral part of any lesson structure/instructional model, so we need to get them right. This means activities and games that require minimal preparation, yet are mathematically rich, regularly open-ended and engaging, so that your students start the lesson feeling keen and motivated.

The April 26th webinar will feature a range of fantastic warm-up activities for Year 3 to 6 students that do exactly that: ready your kids for the maths to follow in an enjoyable and engaging way. You can even use these activities the very next day!

Lockdown 2.0

The lockdown might be back, but it doesn’t have to be the end of quality maths teaching!

 

It’s back! Tragically, there’s at least 5 weeks of learning from home for Greater Metro Melbourne and Mitchell Region. It’s a shocker, but you need to make the best of it educationally. If you didn’t get into the Maths-at-Home lesson packs for Lockdown 1.0 then you really should for Lockdown 2.0. Sending home worksheets or setting your students work from some online websites isn’t the best you can offer your students or their parents.

The Maths-At-Home packs will get you through Lockdown 2.0, and you’ll do it with maths that:
– is engaging
– is active and enjoyable
– covers all content areas
– is very worthwhile and effective
– can be adapted into the classroom once lockdown is over

So how much do they cost?
Foundation        – $50 per pack per teacher at your school
Years 1 to 6        – $75 per pack per teacher at your school

I’m also offering to unpack the Maths-At-Home ebooks with groups of teachers via Webex or Zoom if required. This would mean making a booking at a cost of $400 per hour.

If you’re interested in purchasing Maths-At-Home or you’d like to see the sample lessons please contact me:

If you’re looking for ways to keep your students engaged in maths during lockdown, or if you have students unable to attend school in-person and want them to keep up with their maths work, Rob has recently published his Maths at Home Packs, four packs catering to students from Foundation up to Year 6, with some activities suitable for Year 7 & 8 students, too.
