How Tall Was the Beanstalk? Finding Maths in Everyday Stories - CPD Webinar

The power of storytelling has long been understood by teachers, but maths is not a common context. Teachers do sometimes create their own mathematical narratives - to help procedural fluency in particular - but we can go further and discover mathematical ideas in real literature.

  • Find out how literary investigation can increase engagement in maths
  • Explore story-based strategies that develop problem-solving and reasoning
  • Add a new dimension to your reading comprehension

About this Webinar

A key principle of TT Education’s Path to Success model is that children’s learning should be rooted in rich contexts and experiences. What better context than an engaging narrative? While we are well-versed in this approach for some subjects, we use it less often in maths, and even less with real literature. This webinar investigates how you can find and use implicit mathematics in the stories your children love. It will:

  • Outline a research base for using stories to develop children’s understanding
  • Explore examples of mathematics in some well-known stories
  • Suggest story-based strategies that will drive up standards in mathematics 

Audience:

  • Teachers and TAs (all years)
  • Maths coordinators and curriculum leads
  • Senior leaders
