Approach to education: Teaching for understanding
Briana Rutter is a maths teacher at Meriden School in Strathfield, NSW. At Meriden, teachers move away from a procedural approach and shift the focus on teaching for understanding.
Briana follows this approach by incorporating Mathspace adaptive tasks in her classroom, as they generate questions suited to the level of understanding of each individual student, taking each student on their personalised learning path. The teacher reports also provide Briana the most important information on how her students are progressing, which students need some extra help, and which areas her students find most difficult.
