Code Camp for Victorian Maths Teachers (New Victorian Maths Curriculum)

 

After successfully teaching more than 13,000 students across Australia, we’re proud to launch our first PL sessions in Victoria. Our Code Camp for the Victorian Maths Curriculum is a 'Train the Trainer' Workshop where we share our expert knowledge with teachers, to help you successfully deliver the new coding units in the Victorian Maths Curriculum.

  • Join our experienced team of Code Camp educators
  • Learn how to train your teachers in teaching the new coding units in the maths curriculum to ensure effective and meaningful integration of coding in your maths lesson
  • Ready made Victorian Curriculum Ready lessons to instantly teach your students meaningful and engaging maths-based coding skills
  • A fun and practical workshop to unpack the coding units in the Victorian Maths Curriculum (and related cross-curricular units in the Digital Technologies Curriculum)
  • Take home a ‘Code Camp for Teachers’ pack containing Victorian Curriculum Ready lesson ideas, lesson plans, worksheets and modelled lessons
  • Develop a simple game which you can share with teachers and students

Let us show you the coding methodologies to inspire your students in problem solving, creativity, computational thinking and logical thinking skills, all through the journey of coding.

For all events, registration starts from 8.30am with the sessions starting at 9am. These will finish around 4pm. Tea and lunch will be provided.

Each event costs $300.00 + GST per person.

This professional learning workshop is suited to maths teachers of the new Victorian Maths Curriculum, and assumes minimum background/experience in coding. It is a unique workshop specifically designed to support teachers at the very beginning of their learn to code journey, providing teachers with an effective foundation that can lead to more advanced coding skills.

You will learn to develop mathematical-based coding lessons to teach students. Coding within The Victorian Maths Curriculum is not just about coding, but explicitly and strategically inspire students to develop computational and logic thinking skills.

Train your Teachers

This workshop will also assist you in developing the appropriate training skills, and confidence to teach your teachers mathematical-based coding. Guided with relevant teaching support materials, you will be able to upskill your teachers in this area.

Join us for a day of fun and engaging workshop delivering real teachable outcomes. Our trainers will provide you with lesson plans to embed coding within your Maths (and Digital Technologies) lessons, show you how to model the teaching of these units to your students, and provide you with real methods to inspire your students’ problem solving, creativity, computational and logical thinking skills, through learning to code.

Here’s what we will be covering during the workshops:

Maths F Follow a short sequence of instructions VCMNA077
Maths L1 Recognise the importance of repetition of a process in solving problems VCMNA094
Maths L2 Apply repetition in arithmetic operations, including multiplication as repeated addition and division as repeated subtraction VCMNA114
Digital Technologies F-2 Follow, describe and represent a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve them VCDTCD017
Maths L3 Use a function machine and the inverse machine as a model to apply mathematical rules to numbers or shapes VCMNA139
Maths L4 Define a simple class of problems and use an effective algorithm that involves a short sequence of steps and decisions to solve them VCMNA164
Digital Techologies 3-4 Define simple problems, and describe and follow a sequence of steps and decisions involving branching and user input (algorithms) needed to solve simple problems VCDTCD023
Maths L5 Follow a mathematical algorithm involving branching and repetition (iteration) VCMNA194
Maths L6 Design algorithms involving branching and iteration to solve specific classes of mathematical problems VCMNA221
Digital Technologies 5-6 Design, modify and follow simple algorithms represented diagrammatically and in English, involving sequences of steps, branching, and iteration VCDTCD032
Maths L7 Design and implement mathematical algorithms using a simple general purpose programming language VCMNA254

For all events, registration starts from 8.30am with the sessions starting at 9am. These will finish around 4pm. Tea and lunch will be provided.

Each event costs $300.00 + GST per person.
