#mixedattainmentmaths Conference

I am proud to have run my first conference workshop yesterday at the 3rd #mixedattainmentmaths conference in London. My session was about my school’s transition from setting to mixed attainment classes in Years 7 and 8. I discussed the nuts and bolts of how we got off the mark, what barriers we faced and how we overcame them, as well as the impact of advice and ideas from an array of advocates of mixed attainment teaching from the likes of Helen Hindle, Zeb Friedman, Mike Ollerton, Bruno Reddy and Mark Horley to name a few.

As promised, I have provided the resources from my workshop for anyone who wants more information or couldn’t make the conference. If you have any further questions I would love to hear them, and if you want to delve further into the conference then resources, information and links can be found at the brilliant http://www.mixedattainmentmaths.com that is run by conference organiser Helen Hindle. And if you would like to come and see us in action, or you want arrange to speak to our SLT for advice please get in contact.

RESOURCE: Increasing/Decreasing by a Percentage Using a Ratio Table

This task uses faded examples to support students in calculating an increase or decrease of an amount by a percentage, using a ratio table. The task builds onto a great task by Colin Foster, found on his Mathematical Etudes website via https://www.foster77.co.uk/Foster,%20Teach%20Secondary,%20What’s%20The%20Deal.pdf
