Remote Professional Development

Over the lock down period Enigma Maths Hub have prepared short remote professional development courses to give you a taster of the Work Groups that will be on offer when we return to school.

The courses are completely free and open to any teacher of mathematics.  You can book on as many courses as you like.


The first three short online courses are aimed at any secondary teacher interested in the principles and practices of Teaching for Mastery.  NEW DATES NOW AVAILABLE


Each session will start with a short introduction on Zoom followed up with activities to try at home. Each course has its own area to chat and share ideas with other teachers. No experience is necessary. Just sign up and give it a go. 

Tue 9 June 3 – 4.30

Procedural Variation

This short online course is aimed at any secondary teacher interested in intelligent practice.  You will learn about the theory behind intelligent practice and have access to lots of examples to use in the classroom. 




Tue 23 June 3 – 4.30

Multiple Representations 

This course looks at the use of multiple representations to probe the understanding of learning mathematics.  You will see examples that uncover mathematical structure allowing greater depth and fluency. 




Tue 30 June 3 – 4.30

Conceptual Variation 

This course looks at the use of variation to: 

  • introduce new concepts using standard, non-standard and non-examples 

  • address misconceptions 

  • assess conceptual understanding using Diagnostic Questions.   



This is a new online learning format that we are trying out.  It can be downloaded and used anytime.  Please give feedback on the form in the PowerPoint.  The PowerPoint contains a mixture of video and texts.  This is a large file so an online version is also available.

Thinking of the minus sign as an opposite takes away the problem of one symbol many meanings.​
