TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Ian Francis Hailes is an experienced Secondary Mathematics teacher. He has been privileged to teach the children of his former students. Skilled in teaching Years 7-12 across all courses and ability groups, staff development, leadership, management, curriculum development, examination panels, marking and tutoring. Ian can see mathematics in everything he looks at. He enjoys writing and presenting. Ian has produced a raft of resources to support teaching and learning and build teacher capacity.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Much of what we do with mathematics is about exploiting (in the nicest sense) well defined concepts and procedures which have been well taught and faithfully learnt. For example, repeated addition becomes our much-loved Times Tables. However, it is exploration that has the more important role in the teaching and learning of mathematics. The renowned problem solver, George Polya, famously said: not only have we to use our heads to learn mathematics but use mathematics to learn to use our heads. Curiosity, imagination and passion, naturally lead to inquiry, modelling, creating, investigating and problem solving.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 2016, Ian was Faculty Advisor to a group of students, who achieved International Meritorious recognition whilst representing Australia in the 2nd Annual International Mathematical Modelling Challenge (IM2C).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Ian has a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Maths) from Otago (NZ) and Murdoch (WA) Universities, and a Graduate Certificate of Education in Computer-based Instructional Design from Edith Cowan University (WA).
