Description

A practical approach to teaching mechanics in the new A-level mathematics specifications

What can you do with a house brick, a tennis ball, some six inch nails and a hammer?

In this two hour CPD session, aimed at teachers of A-level mathematics who wish to enthuse all students encountering the mechanics elements of the new A-level specification, you will find out how simple everyday objects can be incorporated into your teaching.

During the session participants will:

  • Discuss the advantages and the barriers to a practical approach to the teaching of mechanics.

  • Take part in a series of hands-on experiments which can be easily replicated in the classroom.

  • Gain access to freely available mechanics resources which can be used as inspiration for further lessons

There will also be the opportunity to discuss the implementation of the new A level in your school, convey what information you still require and what further support your maths hub can offer.

Presenter:

The session will be delivered by Steve Lyon, Mathematics Specialist at the National STEM Learning Centre in York.
