21KEC416 Introduction to IZAK9

 

Please note:  This course will be run as a face-to-face course in Kildare Education Support Centre. (Dependent on Government restrictions and advice in place at the time) 

Dates:  Thursday 4th & 11th November 2021 from 7pm-8.30pm

This course will be aimed primarily at 4th, 5th and 6th Classes in Primary School.  However, Izak9 tasks are also suitable for First Year students in Post Primary school.

 Izak9 consists of 27 brightly coloured cubes, with each face being populated with different combinations of colour, number, and shape. These cubes come accompanied with a suite of online tasks. The tasks are aimed specifically at the development of mathematical skills as outlined in the Primary School Mathematics curriculum. The tasks also span several strands of the curriculum, including Number, Algebra and Shape and Space.

Children work in teams using the physical cubes to solve the tasks from the whiteboard at the front of the room.

 The learning is fun, engaging and rewarding with all children getting the opportunity to participate actively in every task.

This course will run over two sessions. 

Session 1: Introduction to Izak9 - Exploring engaging tasks for the classroom.   

Session 2: Further exploration of Izak9 tasks, exploration of online planning tools, planning for differentiation and pupil-led activities. 

Sets of Izak9 cubes will be made available on loan from Kildare Education Support Centre for participants of this course. 

Facilitator: Gráinne Higgins, Primary School teacher with Master of Education degree in Teaching and Learning from DCU
