For each sub-topic a separate workshop could be organized. During the workshops teachers explore strategies and activities which may support them in the planning of lessons related to any of 9 Shape and Space sub-topics. The materials include overview and a number of resource sheets. The departmental workshops have been written to provide school mathematics team with structured professional development to be delivered in-house utilising members’ expertise and knowledge. Materials could be used for self-guided learning too. Departmental workshops’ material was developed by National Centre for Exellence in the Teaching of Mathematics.
