This workshop will be run over two sessions and is suitable for teachers of all classes from 1st-6th. Please note that these workshops are based on the PDST Fractions Manual and the PDST Place Value, Decimals and Percentages Manual available at http://www.pdst.ie/Mathematics. It may be beneficial to download these and bring them to the workshop.
These workshops aim to support teachers in teaching mathematics using a child-centred approach which focuses primarily on conceptual understanding.
