The course is delivered by Think Global in association with the Royal Statistical Society as part of the Global Learning Programme

Aims of the course:

To develop education practitioners’ understanding of the link between maths and real global issues. To develop education practitioners’ understanding of how maths and global learning can be mutually beneficial. To explore ways to engage pupils in maths by making the primary maths curriculum relevant to the world that we live in. To demonstrate how global learning pedagogy can be applied to the primary maths curriculum. To support education practitioners’ in accessing quality maths and global learning resources.

Expected outcomes:

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • recognise opportunities to embed global learning in the primary maths curriculum;
  • find and access high quality global learning resources;
  • critique global learning resources;
  • apply global learning pedagogical approaches to their maths teaching;
  • reflect on their maths teaching practise;
  • explore methods of 'hooking' maths onto real world issues.

Embedding global learning in your teaching:

This course will support teachers to embed global learning into their maths curriculum. It will model how to link elements of the maths curriculum to real world issues e.g. using statistics to understand climate change or exploring money in relation to poverty and wealth divides. Teachers will feel confident in accessing global learning resources that can support their maths teaching, as well as developing their own approaches. The course will look at how cross-curricular projects can be extended to the maths classroom, enhancing children's understanding of broader global issues.
