Description

Place value is one of the important big ideas in mathematics to understand well. In this hands-on workshop, we will play with a variety of materials that will develop a better understanding for the aspects of place value and, in particular, the difference between an additive and multiplicative place value task. A Place Value Year Planner will be used by participants to map their place value journey.

Participants will receive a complete Place Value Year Planner set, a ‘Playing with Place Value’ book and some Place Value materials.

David is the AISWA Numeracy Coordinator and has worked with AISWA for eight years.  He taught mathematics to rural students in WA for 28 years.  David regularly presents ‘hands-on’ school workshops, which includes mental maths strategies, fractions and engaging in problem solving and reasoning tasks, and co-presents the AISWA Principals as Numeracy Leaders project. David is a co-author of the “Check the Clues” books and he has recently collaborated with Paul Swan to develop the Playing with Place Value Yearly Planner and resources.

Dr Paul Swan

Dr Paul Swan has taught mathematics in both primary and secondary schools and worked as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education at Edith Cowan University in Australia for 18 years.

He has written over 50 books, authored numerous journal articles and created many types of mathematics games – board, card and digital. He currently designs mathematics manipulative materials and supports schools looking to improve the teaching of mathematics in both schools and across whole school systems (State, Catholic and Independent).

He has received numerous awards, including an Honorary Fellowship of the Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL) for his work with School Leaders. For his contribution to Mathematics Education in his home state of Western Australia he was awarded an Honorary Life Membership by the Mathematics Association of Western Australia. He regularly speaks on a variety of topics, particularly in early childhood and primary (elementary education). He received his PhD in 2002 for his study of the computational choices made by 10 - 12 year old students. He currently continues to write and develop materials that may be found on his website www.drpaulswan.com.au as well as acting as a private consultant and professional learning provider to schools.
