The focus of this two-day workshop-style conference is Singapore’s problem solving approach to mathematical instruction, which reflects the pedagogy of Curriculum for Wales, 2022.

Through a series of interactive tasks, learn about Singapore’s evidenced based, highly effective and league topping approach to teaching maths.

Teachers are supported in meeting the needs of our increasingly diverse classrooms by building pupils’ mathematical fluency without the need for rote learning.

Through exposition, Professor Yeap Ban Har brings mathematical theories to life and bridges thinking between the concrete, the pictorial and the abstract concepts of mathematics – Bruner’s Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract (CPA) approach.

Develop mathematical behaviours and thinking in your pupils by using the CPA approach, as opposed to a focus and attention on rote learning without deep understanding.
