In this section you will be able to explore three different sessions. You might like to view them more than once, each time focusing on a different aspect of the planning. There are many ways to promote effective learning. You can explore some of these in the 'Thinking about learning' section on this resource. The challenge is to consider how these strategies can be incorporated into your own session planning. Each activity is designed to achieve different mathematical learning objectives. As you explore this section you might want to reflect on what each activity might achieve and how this might affect your planning.
In this Standards Unit: Improving Learning in Mathematics video you will be able to explore the principles and strategies followed by teachers and trainers when planning sessions.
In all cases there is a strong focus on the learner and the learning outcomes.
