LTD lessons are organised according to the strands of the Australian Curriculum – Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability. Within each strand is a topic menu and within each topic is a list of lessons. Each lesson title describes the Maths in the lesson. Lessons are organised on the webpage in a suggested teaching sequence within each topic.
Learning Through Doing is based in Australia but the mathematics in our lessons is universal. LTD lessons are currently linked to the Australian Curriculum but these can certainly be linked to the Curriculum documents of other countries.
All LTD lessons include a list of the maths concepts that are the focus of the lesson. They also include a brief Teacher Background section aimed at providing some insight into the Maths in the lesson. The intention of these sections is to teach the teacher something they may not have realised about the maths in the lesson. LTD lessons also model an inquiry approach so teachers can learn about this way of teaching as they become familiar with the lessons. The LTD team can also present dedicated Professional development to schools on request.
LTD lessons have been written so they are accessible to parents as well as teachers. Each lesson provides some background to the maths being taught and the lessons are detailed so each step makes sense. The resources mentioned in lessons can be swapped for things around the home e.g. dry pasta instead of counters.
LTD has plans to write lessons for Junior Secondary (Years 7-10). The plan is to start writing these in 2021. Until then some of the Year 6 lessons could provide ideas for Year 7 classes.
Yes, LTD lessons are carefully organised so learning in each topic progresses across year levels. We have Scope and Sequence overview documents for Foundation to Yr 2; Year 2 to Year 4 and Year 4 to Year 6.
LTD has written Year Overviews for grades Foundation to Year 6 with a term by term suggested teaching sequence for the LTD lessons all linked to the Australian Curriculum.
LTD lessons are organised into ‘phases’ within each topic. The lessons are listed in order so if there is a concept your students need you can track backwards to find a lesson to help them.
Each lesson has a short video that models each lesson. The video briefly describes the three parts of the lesson.
Access to the LTD website can be by individual subscription or whole school subscription.
LTD lessons can be used to supplement existing school programs. LTD lessons are organised using the same topics as most curriculum documents/commercial programs.
All Learning Through Doing lessons have a three-part pedagogical structure. They start with a Whole Class activity followed by a Hands-On activity where students use materials to further investigate the maths and each lesson has an Independent task that is directly related to the lesson that can be used for assessment or for follow up.
