Numeracy Lead Teachers Day 2010 Resources

Keynote Speaker One: Chanda Pinsent

Keynote Title: Using Assessment as a Springboard to Inquiry. Chanda Pinsent is currently a maths co-teacher at Carterton School, and an independent maths adviser in the Wairarapa. She has worked as a senior primary teacher, numeracy facilitator and researcher, and teacher education lecturer. Right now she is pretty sure it's all about place value.

The keynote address will explore the links between formative assessment and mathematical inquiry using examples from Chanda's own classroom practice. These examples include the measurement investigation that created "The Big Map", the place value project that produced "Millions Morning", and the geometry debate that generated " The Giant Angle". In each example, mathematics learning moved outside the classroom and across curriculum learning areas.

Keynote Speaker Two: Jonathan Fisher

Supporting classroom learning and overall teacher judgement with the Assessment Resource Banks: using ARBs as evidence for the National standards. Johnathan Fisher - NZCERJonathan is a researcher and resource developer at NZCER. He has been a member of the Assessment Resource Bank (ARB) item development since 2003, with a particular focus on developing mathematics resources, and classroom-based research about maths, ICT, curriculum, and assessment. His current focus on the ARB mathematics team is on fractional thinking, algebraic patterns, and Numeracy.

This keynote involves a brief introduction to the Assessment Resource Banks, and a look at their purpose. We will also look at the range of ARBs identified that can support teachers with the National standards.An online selector has been constructed for locating relevant ARB resources.

Finally we will explore making teacher judgments using specific examples of students’ strategies from ARB resources.
