Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Primary Teaching Assistants

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy.

The project is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of primary maths.

It utilises primary teaching assistant-specific materials and focuses on the following mathematical areas:

What is effective in the learning and teaching of mathematics?, Number sense (part 1), Number sense (part 2), Additive reasoning, Multiplicative reasoning & Fractions.

These programmes are designed for primary teaching assistants who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.

This Work Group is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
