Event description

Description

Teachers or departments keen to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment at GCSE are encouraged to take part in this project. Work Groups will explore professional development activities focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches. . The approaches attempt to address not only the longer development of these skills across all teaching but also the needs of current KS4 pupils as they approach GCSE.

The activities themselves also offer a model for wider department engagement with professional development processes, and hence could provide the basis of an effective department improvement programme in this area.

Who is this for?

All secondary maths departments and teachers wishing to begin or continue a programme of professional development to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics GCSE. This Work Group is most effective when each school sends two members of department, at least one of whom is experienced and has some leadership responsibility within the department.

What is involved?

·4 workshops (1 x full day, 3 x afternoon) spread over three terms, for two Work Group School Leads from each school.
·Gap tasks between the workshops, including Lesson Study and opportunities for wider department participation in the professional development.
·An evaluation process focussing on the impact of the Work Group
