# Effective Maths Teaching In The Current Context

We hope these resources may be of some use to you and your students. An overview of many of these resources was described in detail during our recent webinar. We've selected materials which we think are most useful and have added in some videos and materials which may help you when planning for supporting your students in their learning. As teachers, you're in the best place to judge which materials are most useful for your students and the design of activities around these resources.

If you have any questions about the best use of these resources or if you would like to arrange for an advisor to speak to you please email us at postprimarymaths@pdst.ie.

Key Messages

• Blended learning can help with the current Covid-19 related challenges in teaching maths in our schools. In the longer term we should develop sustainable good practice in this area of our teaching.
• Blended learning facilitates the use of rich tasks to support and extend all our students.
