This talk will focus on the pictorial element of the concrete, pictorial, abstract (CPA) approach to teaching maths. It will show how diagrams such as those used in bar modelling can help demystify word problems and how diagrams and pictures can reveal underlying structures in maths concepts.
This presentation will be very practical and accessible for parents as well as teachers.
