How can a child catch up to learn times tables in one term? Children should know all times tables by the end of year 4, but there are children that slip through the net, taking much longer to learn them.

How can a child catch up to learn times tables in one term?

There are also children that may seem to have learned times tables by the end of year 4, but forget and have to work into upper key stage 2 to relearn. This post describes a plan to get children who are in year 3 and 4 and who are not on track to understand times tables by the end of year 4. The plan is also for children in year 5 and 6 who still do not know their times tables. A fact a day for a term The basic structure of the plan is to work on one fact per day. Multiple representations For times tables to stick and to be useful in other areas of maths, they need to be rooted in secure understanding. Using this we can explain that 4 x 5 means 5 lots of 4 and that by counting in multiples, we can find out that 4 x 5 = 20.

Creating Math Talk Communities. Twenty-one fourth graders are actively listening and constructively critiquing mathematical statements.

Creating Math Talk Communities

Each student is eagerly participating in mathematical discussions that involve multiple strategies to discover solutions. What a dramatic change since the first months of school when the same students sat as quiet as stone statues, hoping their teacher would just tell them how to solve the problem. This mathematics classroom has transformed from students blurting out solutions and arguing over correct answers to a group that collaboratively perseveres through problem solving. Student cooperation is evident through the desire not only to justify strategies but also to learn different strategies from peers. Tes Resources sur Twitter : "Looking for place value resources?

I wish I could offer support to primary school teachers too but it isn't my area of expertise. I'm often asked if I can point people in the direction of primary maths resources and blogs. This page provides a few starting points. Blogs Simon Gregg's lovely class blog features accounts of activities undertaken by his Year 4 class. Resources These websites provide printable and/or interactive primary maths resources.

Miss Brookes Maths

I love teaching this topic, I find it to be such a nice topic with some lovely activities. To start with I love the free resources from Just Maths. There is a mini Whodunnit activity where pupils have to first fill in a sheet full of two-way tables, and then evaluate statements about the tables deciding which are true and which are false (Data sheet and Worksheet). This is a great activity and a wonderful way to get literacy into the lesson. I also love this "What's the Story? " Mathworksheetland have a Independent Practice Worksheet and a Matching Worksheet for using two-way tables. On TES there are some great resources, including this lesson from MrsKimMcKee. Daniel Burke has a great worksheet with lots of questions to practise filling in two-way tables. Using Questioning to Stimulate Mathematical Thinking. Good questioning techniques have long being regarded as a fundamental tool of effective teachers.

Using Questioning to Stimulate Mathematical Thinking

Unfortunately, research shows that 93% of teacher questions are "lower order" knowledge based questions focusing on recall of facts (Daines, 1986). Clearly this is not the right type of questioning to stimulate the mathematical thinking that can arise from engagement in open problems and investigations. Many Primary teachers have already developed considerable skill in good questioning in curriculum areas such as Literacy and History and social studies, but do not transfer these skills to Mathematics. Teachers' instincts often tell them that they should use investigational mathematics more often in their teaching, but are sometimes disappointed with the outcomes when they try it. Mark Gilbranch sur Twitter : "@rpd1972 seen these? Bloom's Taxonomy. Mastering the common problem types in maths. I’ve been wanting to combine some of the thinking I’ve been doing into cognitive overload, worked and partially completed examples, and the bar method as a pictorial representation of mathematical problems.

Mastering the common problem types in maths

The lesson described below is what I did, with a substantial eye on the expectations of the new national curriculum and the idea of mastery. A worked example A good explanation clearly takes children through the steps needed in order to solve a problem, but these steps should be rooted in the deeper structure of a problem and not the superficial. As such, the success criteria that the teacher works from and that children refer to should support that expectation of analysis. In the example, I showed my class how they could solve a comparison problem where both the total of the parts and the difference between them is known, but the value of each part is not.

Plenty of ideas were shared - here's five of them. 1. Revision Whispers. As I've said before, I'm always on the look out for engaging ideas for revision lessons. All teams have the same message. 2. Speaking of post-it notes, I like this 'What stuck with you? ' If you want more post-it note teaching ideas then check out 'Post-it addict?

Ed Southall's (@edsouthall) tricky maths problems on his website are also really visually appealing and I look forward to using them to challenge and extend my students next year. 4. 5.
