Mastery style teaching: Microscopic Progression

Microscopic Progression (focus on written methods) based on the Shanghai principle of ‘variation’

This interactive one day course will introduce attendees to the concept of ‘variation’ in written calculations. It will aid in deepening the understanding of teaching towards a mastery curriculum in Maths through microscopic progression.

This training, led by London South West Maths Hub lead James Berry, is aimed at KS2 teaching staff, Maths coordinators and senior leaders and will provide a clear picture of the microscopic progressive steps required in order to achieve fluency in columnar written methods.

The importance of teaching variation will be demonstrated with a chance to observe a lesson and with the opportunity for attendees to return to school with a number of resources which can immediately impact the quality of teaching and learning in school. 

This event has proved extremely popular with great feedback from delegates.
