Subject Knowledge (ECT Teachers)

This project is new to the Maths Hub offer this year and is designed to support Early Career Teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.  

The aim of this community is to work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and will include lesson analysis and lesson design. 

Participants will: 

  • plan and teach a carefully sequenced and coherent area of maths 

  • appreciate the key ideas underpinning the area of maths being taught 

  • understand key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery 

  • understand approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning, so that learning sequences take this into account 

  • make appropriate use of representations to expose the structure of the maths being taught. 

  • observe experienced teachers in Maths, analysing the pedagogy. 

 

What is involved? 

Participants will work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design.

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.
