Numeracy: Ratio & Proportion

Description

Primary maths consultant Darren Ellsum introduces the idea of using ICT in numeracy teaching to illustrate abstract topics.

In the first of two lessons, advanced skills teacher Liz Walker uses presentation software in edit mode to illustrate ratio to her pupils in Bexley.

In the second lesson, Liz works with a smaller group, introducing proportion by looking at Leonado da Vinci's Vitruvian Man and by getting pupils to analyse photos of themselves.

ICT can be a really useful tool for helping pupils develop mental images of abstract topics in numeracy.
