In Singapore, the understanding of fractions is rooted in the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) model. In this course, Dr Yeap Ban Har will demonstrate how the use of pictures and careful naming will develop and ensure children’s understanding of fractions.

Learn about Jerome Bruner's 'Spiral Curriculum', a teaching approach in which each subject or skill area is revisited in intervals at a more sophisticated level each time. This approach gives pupils a deeper understanding of a concept.

You’ll learn the two keys to learning fractions, the operations, plus challenging word problems and bar modelling for fraction problems.


Course impact for teachers

Teachers will learn about teaching fractions across all year groups. Plus, they’ll gain content knowledge which will allow them to see what their pupils are doing with greater clarity and ultimately be confident at teaching fractions.


Course impact for schools

The school will have expertise in teaching one of the harder subjects in maths, plus practical teaching activities to use within classrooms.


Who should attend

For teachers, mathematics subject leaders and department heads (years 1 to 6) who are teaching for mastery.
