Win 1 x Online Teacher Training with Maths Australia!
To celebrate our Platinum Sponsorship with QAMT, we're giving away 1 x Online Teacher Training to one lucky winner!
These Online Trainings are being held in response to the overwhelming response from teachers, tutors and intervention specialists alike asking for help to teach multi-sensory maths.
The Math-U-See program is the step-by-step foundation we use throughout the Trainings because of the hands-on, multisensory approach to learning maths. Students not only understand each maths concept being taught better, but they are able to master the topic and move forward confidently.
As teachers and intervention specialists, we understand how difficult it can be to teach maths to your students (especially if they don't seem to understand Place Value, basic addition and subtraction or are still counting with their fingers) so we're here to help! We're here to support you teaching your students multisensory maths that will increase their confidence, understanding and engagement with maths.
And the best part is, you don't need any prior experience to attend these Online Trainings.
You can read more about online and in-person Multisensory Maths Trainings here.

JOIN THE 2021 QAMT
EARLY YEARS AND MIDDLE YEARS
Here's what we'll be talking about...
Esther White, CEO and National Program Co-ordinator will be presenting two of the workshops at QAMT Early Years and Middle Years Conference. Having worked with teachers and presented across Australia, Esther has a wealth of tried and tested knowledge to help with teaching maths for students of all ages and abilities.
WORKSHOP ONE - Saturday 27th Feb, 10.30am
If students miss out on the "Big Ideas of Maths" in the early years, this sets up negative patterns and a lack of confidence that has devastating effects further into their schooling.Too often they decide they "don't have a maths brain", "will never understand maths", or are just "dumb". When we identify their current level of mastery and then teach key concepts (such as Place Value) as necessary prior knowledge, we give our students the opportunity to understand - and love - this language that explains the universe. In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of the sequential nature of maths; use a free tool to "place" students within this broader sequence; and be able to identify gaps that MUST be filled for their students to easily progress.
WORKSHOP TWO - Sunday 28th Feb, 9.00am
Often, as teachers, we think that 'the greater the variety of hands-on resources, the better'. However, recent research is now showing that the use of just one manipulative - for a minimum time period of three years - is much more supportive of students as they gain confidence in the one teaching tool, and can spend time learning the new maths concept rather than learning the plethora of new teaching tools we may place in front of them. In this workshop, come and experience for yourself the ease of teaching PlaceValue, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division using our specialised manipulatives and simple concrete - representational - abstract framework.

The QAMT Early Years and Middle Years Conference is an in-person and online conference made specifically for Australian teachers, tutors and educators. It features a fantastic line up of speakers to help you achieve the best results with your students.

EXCLUSIVE Q&A SESSION WITH ESTHER
It can be a little overwhelming trying to take everything in during the conference, with so many quality speakers back-to-back. Often you either don't have questions yet or want to implement what you've learned and then ask follow up questions!
We're going to run an exclusive Q & A session after QAMT Early Years and Middle Years Conference for you to ask your questions with Esther about teaching multisensory maths to your students for best results.
