Support material for Step 2 Tutorial

Table format for analysing steps you go through in order to complete the challenge

 Steps Knowledge and understandings and processes students are expected to use (from prior knowledge) knowledge and understandings needing to be taught Skills or processes needing to be taught Thinking skills needing to be used or taught Where will they likely get stuck

As your students work through the task they will each be at very different points. This table will help you keep track of students' progress (where they are in the cycle) and to understand individual student needs at different points. It will help you understand where to 'pause' in the process to teach or revise a skill or understanding needed before moving on.

Example of working through the analysis table from "Sweet Maths Challenge" (more details of this task here)

 Steps expected from students (eventually) Knowledge and understandings and processes students are expected to use (from prior knowledge) knowledge and understandings needing to be taught Skills or processes needing to be taught Thinking skills needing to be used or taught Where will they likely get stuck look at the container - write down all the 2D shapes 2D shape recognition; circles, semicircles, rectangles, squares, etc. write down all the 3D shapes 3D shape recognition; spheres, cuboids, cones, hemispheres, cones, partial cones recognition find/recall the formulae for each shape recall new conical sections formulae find volume of one sweet if it's a regular 3D shape then easy (use formula)    -finding the average diameter of a sphere using various methods; e.g. 1 - volume of a small irregular shape (science curriculum link) by displacement of water find empty space (between sweets) ?? ?? modelling using available materials or on paper?
