Differentiation when teaching Maths (Thin-slicing)

Differentiation is a term that is often heard amongst teachers, though challenging to master. The varying learning stages that students step into your classroom, should make differentiation the default design when building content within the classroom. This session will introduce you to a technique of differentiation to support you in achieving better student outcomes when teaching Maths (or numeracy). Thin-slicing is one technique that you can use to cater to a wide range of abilities in your classroom. It is all in the planning - understanding the concept that you are teaching, breaking it down into its parts, and then creating layered activities that scaffold student learning. The process of narrow (hence the 'thin-slicing') to complex enables students to experience success and builds their confidence. The multi-layers to your topic ranging from entry to extended level can adapt to any classroom. In this session, an experienced Maths teacher will share examples of thin-slicing that have worked in the classroom. Suitable for middle years teachers (Years 5-9).
