Planning Resources

The documents below have been designed to support teachers and Mathematics subject departments in planning.

Planning Interactive Resource

This self-guided interactive CPD is entitled Planning for Teaching, Learning and Assessment. It will give you the opportunity to consider how your school's plan can enable students to experience mathematics as a connected body of ideas.

It can be used individually or as a subject department. The approaches, ideas and concepts presented are not intended to be definitive, and teachers could well form a different set of ideas or try alternative approaches. They may be useful to think about when considering your school's approach to planning.

 

The anticipated time to complete the core part of this interactive CPD is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Planning for Teaching, Learning and Assessment

 

The resources in this section were developed for our webinar 'Planning for Teaching, Learning and Assessment: One School's Approach.

 

We would recommend that you view the webinar, available on this page, to see how the resources were developed and their potential for adaptation for your own school context.

 

Our thanks to the staff of ETSS Wicklow for their contributions to these supports for teachers.
