KS5: Developing Mathematical Thinking in Post 16 Students
Appropriate for teachers of A level Mathematics, this course highlights the need for strong mathematical thought processes in students in order that they are able to solve a variety of mathematical problems. It aims to provide teachers with the skills and strategies needed to effectively prepare their students for the problem-solving requirements of their final examination. Teachers will be encouraged to integrate a variety of problem-solving activities into their A level mathematics classrooms in order to enrich the experience of students in mathematics lessons and give them the opportunity to develop the strong mathematical thought processes needed to successfully progress to a university mathematics course.
A range of problem-solving materials designed for post 16 students will be introduced and assessed.
