Description There is widespread fear of mathematics as a ‘hard’ subject; many teaching assistants share this view. There is an increasing tendency for teaching assistants to specialise and those attached to the mathematics department will benefit from understanding approaches to calculations and algebra in particular. The course will suggest ways in which teaching assistants can support pupils through scaffolding, the use of questioning and helping pupils to ‘decode’ questions. There will be opportunities to look at how teachers plan units of work and how teaching assistants can support the planning through guidance on scaffolding and adapting resources.
