8. Mathematics professional learning

The NSW Mathematics Strategy Professional Learning team leads mathematics professional learning across K-12 to support the leading, teaching and learning of mathematics. We offer a range of bite-size, short and sustained professional opportunities.

About this initiative

Sustained professional learning

What is sustained professional learning?

The NSW Mathematics Strategy sustained professional learning courses are comprised of self-paced modules which are released over the course of a year. These courses aim to develop a deeper understanding of mathematical content, practices and/or pedagogies, providing time for participants to investigate and respond to these ideas in their context.

In 2023, different sustained professional learning opportunities will include conversations with leading academics in mathematics education.

Becoming Mathematicians: Big Ideas to Start Strong across K-6

Big Ideas to Start Strong across K-6 is designed to enrich teacher understanding of big ideas and core concepts in mathematics from Kindergarten to Year 6 (and beyond). This course replaces the Working with the Big Ideas (3-6) and Starting Strong (K-2) courses that were offered in 2021. The new combined course supports a whole-school approach to the leading, teaching and learning of mathematics.

What is short course professional learning?

The NSW Mathematics Strategy short professional learning courses are comprised of a few self-paced modules. These courses aim to provide a deeper dive into specific content, practices and pedagogies over a small number of sessions, providing time for participants to investigate and respond to ideas in their context.

Using Number Talks & Number Sense Routines across K-6

Using Number Talks and Number Sense Routines explores different teaching routines in mathematics and how they can be used well to support student learning. The course is designed to build upon and enrich existing teacher knowledge of various teaching routines of mathematics.

Bite-size professional learning

What is bite-size professional learning?

The NSW Mathematics Strategy bite-size on-demand professional learning opportunities are short, focused mathematical videos and resources that explore important mathematical concepts from K-8. They are designed to be completed in one session with suggested opportunities for participants to further explore ideas in practice.
