I can remember how I felt when I came back from the SLN meeting when we were first introduced to the idea of the process skills in the Key Stage 3 programme of Study - I wanted to teach pupils to be good mathematicians but knew that we needed to make some changes to let this happen. I put this ‘change’ as the main item for the next department meeting. I decided to start with an activity so that everybody understood the sort of thing we were talking about – we enjoyed doing the maths together and most people said that this fitted in with our existing vision of good mathematics teaching. Some teachers said that although they enjoyed it – they couldn’t find enough good activities to do throughout the year so we decided to look at the scheme of work and see how we could add things to help each other - now our scheme of work is online it is easy to add links to different resources. A couple of less experienced teachers asked if they could observe someone else in their classroom so we agreed that the focus of our peer observations this term would be the process objectives so that we could all talk about this again at our next meeting after Christmas.
