King's Mathematics Forum for Teachers
Wed 15 March 2017, 15:30 – 18:00 GMT
This session will be led by Michael Davies and is entitled “Fun with Further Pure”. Michael has been Head of Mathematics at Westminster School for 30 years, and those of you who teach Statistics 3 or 4 (MEI) will recognise him as co-author of the textbooks for these modules. He is also responsible for a significant proportion of the STEP questions written over the past 20 years.
During the session Michael will explore some topics in Further Pure and discuss both the subject knowledge needed and the pedagogical techniques he recommends to those teaching this material. In particular, he will explore Maclaurin Series and how they might be used to link together various aspects of the course. There should be something for everyone – you are welcome to attend if you haven’t yet had the opportunity to teach Further Mathematics and equally welcome if you are “the FP2 teacher” at your school.
