In 2017, we started facilitating our Simply Maths Professional Development sessions in Melbourne. Since then, almost every session we run is at capacity. We continue to receive glowing reviews from participants.
We design our PD days to make strong connections between the latest Mathematics Education research and classroom practice.
We believe the best approach to improving our pedagogy is taking a whole school approach.
Our PD days are appropriate for F-6 teachers and we ensure that every idea, game and resource we present has been trialled in a school setting-so we know they work!
We take great pride in ensuring our sessions are practical and engaging. Participants leave our sessions enthusiastic, and have a multitude of ideas and resources to use immediately when they return to their classroom and school.
We are extremely passionate about improving the quality of Mathematics Education in schools and love to share our ideas with teachers and school leaders across Victoria and beyond!
