Copy of Introduction to using manipulatives

A warm welcome from Judy Brice, Founder of Jackpot Maths. 

During this course, you will learn:

  • The basic methods of utilising manipulatives, whether you teach face to face or online
  • A whistle-stop tour of the most frequently used manipulatives and where to find them
  • Pros and cons of using various manipulatives
  • How to blend your delivery methods between face to face, on a camera, in an app, or pasted and tailored to your needs in BitPaper.
  • A variety of manipulatives to teach at 3 different levels of mathematical concepts.
    • Basic numbers sense, middle or higher level.
    • So regardless of what age range you teach, there are suitable manipulatives to help bring the maths to life and enable all children to learn.

Using manipulatives helps all children, not just those who struggle.

Bringing maths concepts to life away from just the abstract enables all children to engage and learn, removing barriers that prevent them from learning.

The course combines prerecorded videos, information, and tasks to help you understand how to implement the ideas. 

If you only teach older and more competent pupils, you will need to focus on the higher level manipulatives; however, do still make yourself familiar with the lower level tools for when you need to use them with a pupil who has a gap that needs filling.

Welcome to your 'Using manipulatives - what do you know?'

Manipulatives, what do you already know about them?

Which manipulatives? Check any of the manipulatives that you have heard of:

Check any of the manipulatives that you have used before

If you have heard of some of these visual and practical resources what is it that has held you back from using them with your pupils?

Hopefully, this course will inspire you to use resources more often.

Welcome to this second course about Maths Anxiety, where we will build on the content in ‘Introduction to Maths Anxiety’ and look at extra concepts and strategies you can add to your teaching to further enhance your pupils’ learning experience.

I am very honoured that you have chosen to come back for more training with Jackpot Maths and that my experiences and ideas have already been helping your professional development.

This course is longer than the introductory one due to the larger number of lessons and the depth that we will go into each concept.

Work through the course at a pace that suits you and in a way that you can take the time to contemplate each idea and think about how you could implement it.

Some ideas you may already be accustomed to, and if that’s the case, feel pleased with yourself and feel reassured that you are already teaching in a way that is going to be helping your pupils.

During this module, you will learn:

  • Anyone can have Maths Anxiety given the wrong circumstances 
  • More children than you think have this anxiety
  • Deal with the anxiety, and then the learning can take place
  • Given the right teaching strategies, the anxious child can unlock their potential and still succeed
  • A better understanding of Maths Anxiety
  • Having Maths Anxiety does not mean that they necessarily have Dyscalculia; they are separate issues
  • Strategies of how to teach in a more practical and visual way that not just benefits Neurodiverse children but most children

The course is a mixture of prerecorded videos, information, and tasks to help you understand how to put the ideas into practice.
