Looking for Patterns in Mathematics K-2: Using the Top Drawer Teachers

[Early Years in Learning Mathematics]
Presenter: Professor Joanne Mulligan

Time: 4:30pm – 5:30pm (TAS, VIC,NSW, QLD)

Looking for Patterns in Mathematics K-2: Using the Top Drawer Teachers

In the webinar we will explore the AAMT resource supporting the Australian Curriculum-Mathematics: Top Drawer Teachers for Patterns F-2. Patterning plays an important role in the development of mathematics across all strands. We will review some key research that led to the development of this resource: the Pattern and Structure Mathematics Project and Assessment. We will navigate this website to show examples of key ideas related to patterns:  These are organised as Big Ideas, common misunderstandings, good teaching and assessment, and activities.  We will discuss how to integrate these ideas into your mathematics teaching across all strands of the
curriculum.
