During the TLF Maths Professional Learning workshops, educators translate curriculum intent into effective practices.  They aim to support teachers’ professionalism and empower them to build their own knowledge and utilise the range of resources they already have available in their classrooms.  Learn more about our Maths Workshops

Below are a few samples of the resources learned about, shared, and created during workshops with TLF Maths that have used in mathematics classes across the world.

moveNproves

moveNproves were originally designed by TLF Executive Director of Maths, Rob Proffit-White to be a rapid routine—a quick 5-10-minute activity that could be used at the start or end of a maths lesson. A moveNprove comprises a mathematics multiple-choice question with 4 possible answers (a, b, c or d) from which students select the one they believe is correct.

recallNreason

recallNreason are academic games that can be played individually, in pairs, groups and the whole class to reinforce skills being learned.

discussNdefend

discussNdefend provide a visual stimulus for students to discuss, notice, wonder and think about. This could be any task where the focus is on mathematical discourse, e.g. graphs, puzzles, pictures or graphics to stimulate curiosity, wonder, doubt.

revisitNretain

revisitNretain is a routine that provides an opportunity to reactivate key skills and procedures, to practice and deepen what is already known.  This routine could be used as a 10 minute “warm up” or “exit pass.”
