Aims of the session
Aims of the session

This session is intended to help us to:

  • explore the different types of mathematical activity contained in the resource.

    • Classifying mathematical objects.

    • Interpreting multiple representations.

    • Evaluating mathematical statements.

    • Creating problems.

    • Analysing reasoning and solutions.


1 classifying mathematical objects
1. Classifying mathematical objects

  • Learners examine and classify mathematical objects according to their different attributes. They create and use categories to build definitions, learning to discriminate carefully and to recognise the properties of objects. They also develop mathematical language.





2 interpreting multiple representations
2. Interpreting multiple representations one out’

  • Learners match cards showing different representations of the same mathematical idea.

  • They draw links between different representations and develop new mental images for concepts.



3 evaluating mathematical statements
3. Evaluating mathematical statements one out’

  • Learners decide whether given statements are always, sometimes or never true.

  • They are encouraged to develop:

    • rigorous mathematical arguments and justifications;

    • examples and counterexamples to defend their reasoning.






4 creating and solving problems
4. Creating and solving problems one out’

  • Learners devise their own mathematical problems for other learners to solve.

  • Learners are creative and ‘own’ the problems.

  • While others attempt to solve them, learners take on the role of teacher and explainer.

  • The ‘doing’ and ‘undoing’ processes of mathematics are exemplified.

Kirsty created an equation, starting with x = 4.

She then gave it to another learner to solve.




5 analysing reasoning and solutions
5. Analysing reasoning and solutions one out’

Learners compare different methods for doing a problem, organise solutions and/ or diagnose the causes of errors in solutions. They begin to recognise that there are alternative pathways through a problem, and develop their own chains of reasoning.

Correcting mistakes in reasoning.

  • In January, fares went up by 20%.

  • In August, they went down by 20%.

  • Sue claims that: “The fares are now back to what they were before the January increase.”

  • Do you agree?
