Description

Challenging topics in the new GCSE: developing updated teaching approaches to match the new landscape

Overview

Work Groups in this national project, across the Maths Hubs Network in England, aim to gather evidence from teachers’ early experiences with the new maths GCSE, with particular emphasis on how a new mix of challenging topics (for students and teachers) has emerged. Informed by this experience, Work Groups will develop new, or re-shaped, teaching approaches that match the new challenges and that, once embedded, will help students succeed, at both Higher and Foundation level.

Who is this for?

The Work Group will largely consist of pairs of teachers from up to half a dozen secondary schools. Ideally each pair will comprise one teacher with a curriculum responsibility within their department and one other teacher, perhaps a non-specialist.

Whats involved?

  • Participants will agree to focus on one (or more) challenging topics

  • Work Groups will develop and share teaching activities and approaches designed to have immediate impact with KS4 students

  • Work Groups will also develop and share teaching activities for KS3 students which better prepare them for the chosen topic

  • Participants will evaluate the success of the activities and approaches
