Use differentiation to take your maths from good to great

This year our annual conference is all about differentiating mathematics K-6. Featuring some of Australia’s greatest primary maths experts including Emeritus Professor Peter Sullivan, this one-day Saturday conference gives you the tools and strategies you need to take your differentiation from good to great.

This conference will unpack what differentiation means for the subject of mathematics. It will show you why maths needs a unique approach to differentiation, and how to make it simple, low-stress and incredibly effective.

The conference for teachers who understand the importance of maths

Leading maths at your school? Love teaching maths? This conference is for educators who want maths to shine in their classrooms and schools.

This year’s conference is all about differentiation. With a 60-minute keynote address, a 20-minute Pecha Kucha session and 12 workshops to choose from, you’re bound to come away inspired and informed with practical tasks, hands-on tools, maths talk and content knowledge, ready for use at school the very next week.

Following their sessions, many of our presenters will also provide you with electronic and printed tools for planning and implementation, blackline masters including planning templates, and presentation slides, to help you keep the momentum going.

Don’t forget you receive 5.75 NESA PD hours. And because it’s on a Saturday, no need to find cover for your classes!

Experience the excitement and energy of an Anita Chin team-based conference. In 2018, attendees travelled far and wide to Sydney for the annual conference, from schools as far as Scone, Dubbo, Parkes, Cootamundra and Canberra, for an inspirational day of learning: and left with an experience like no other!

“To differentiate instruction is to act on the belief that all kids deserve access to the richest, most compelling learning experiences and to provide the scaffolding they need to seize that opportunity.”
