Course Details

This course offers an exciting opportunity for teachers and maths subject leaders to develop their understanding of how to use the bar model to support mathematical learning in both KS1 and KS2.  

This practical course will focus on how to promote conceptual understanding of number objectives using the bar model.    There will be the opportunity to examine how the bar model can support understanding of the four operations and the inverse relationships between them.  Linked to this there will also be the chance to explore the bar model as a representation when problem solving and working with fractions.

The course will include:

  • Exploring the different types of bar models
  • How to use bar models to support the four operations
  • How to use bar model to support understanding of fractions
  • Progression in reasoning and understanding
  • Review of bar model application in KS1 and KS2 SATS
  • Exposure to high quality resources
  • Examples of bar model use in KS1 and KS2

What you can take home:

  • Resources to use the bar model in your own classroom
  • A deep knowledge and understanding of how and when to use the bar model
  • Ideas of how to implement use of bar models in your own setting
