Secondary Representations and Structures - Bar Modelling

Secondary Representations - Using bar modelling to solve problems

Have you ever wondered how to get KS3 and KS4 pupils to become confident with those trickier multi-step problem solving questions? Bar Modelling is a key tool for teaching for depth of understanding. It accelerates learning by offering students a visual method of learning and problem solving.

Aims of the course:

  • This course explores how to use Bar Modelling as a tool to work through multi-step problem solving questions including those in the New GCSE.

  • You will gain an overview of Bar Modelling and how this powerful approach works.

  • There will be opportunity for delegates to build confidence and skills to create their own bar models.

  • It will give insight into how you can train students to use the Bar Modelling approach to break down those tricky problem solving questions.

  • This method is a useful tool to teach a range of skills and develop problem solving both at KS3 and KS4


The next session will take place on Wednesday 6th November at Outwood Institute of Education, Tenter Balk Lane, Doncaster, DN6 7EQ. Please register your expression of interest below:
