Lesson observation - professional learning for all teachers of mathematics

Lesson observation is one way of enabling a teacher to devise a personalised plan for learning. For this to be most effective, such observation needs to focus on the mathematical learning developing within the lesson. The observer needs to have a deep understanding of mathematics.

The lesson observation form, such as the one linked here, can be used for these observations.

Please note that this lesson observation form remains the intellectual property of the University of Nottingham.

To find out more, you may wish to listen to the podcast with Stef Sullivan from the University of Nottingham on the Mr Barton Maths Podcast. Stef describes an excellent lesson she saw on forming linear equations, and then a lesson on bearings that looked very good on paper, but was not successful.
