We are indebted to Caroline Ainsworth whose video record of her students at primary school actively exploring some mathematical concepts, allows us to share the joy and excitement of children working as mathematicians.
Caroline has achieved an impressive level of understanding for her students and has willingly shared the accrued know-how of some 8 years of self development in the use of the Cuisenaire material, with guidance from Madeleine Goutard and Dr Caleb Gattegno.
Caroline Ainsworth has been interviewed by Pete Griffin from NCETM on her research and work with the Cuisenaire Rods and in particular the work of Madeline Goutard.
Caroline recently won The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School in the Pearson Teaching Awards 2015.
These videos are hosted locally and will require a short time to download before playing.
