Title: Mathematics Differentiation in the K – 6 Classroom

Presenter: Susan Tickle – Narrabeen Lakes Public School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: Participants will familiarise themselves with Assessing for Programming and Differentiation. Practical examples of how to pre – test, plot data & analyse student results within teachers’ classrooms are given and how this information can be used to easily group, and provide feedback to their students. Once grouped into fluid ability levels, various classroom scenarios are scaffolded to show the ways Mathematics can be differentiated in K – 6 mainstream classes. This model takes into account the open – ended and challenging activities GATS students require, teaching ideas for students requiring support and leverages technology. Evidence of improved student outcomes in Mathematics across a whole school is given.

Target Audience: K – 6 Teachers & Executive and School Leaders

Requirements: Participants will require a laptop.
