Work sheets are often used as a one size fits all formula.
Well they don't fit all.
Learning occurs when our students have purposeful tasks, that provoke interest, allow for multiple entry and exit points, encourage sharing of different visual representations of the same mathematical idea and develop deep understanding and reasoning.
We are working on the series called NO WORKSHEETS REQUIRED. New ideas will be added in response to your interest in the packages of information.
Each low-cost package contains problems with scaffolds and supports for busy teachers.
They are rather like a mini-professional development. There is an explanation about how to use them, prompts for you to start with a problem (linked to the Australian Curriculum), ways to gather formative assessment information and tips for implementing a differentiated strategy lesson.
They each include:
Loads of learning! Practical resources AND No worksheets in sight!
