Event description

Description


This course is relevant to all teachers of the new AS and A level Mathematics qualifications, given the requirement for the use of technology to permeate the study of them. It focuses on promoting mathematical understanding through the use of technology, including graphical calculators, graph-plotting software and using the large data set. Additionally, this course will provide guidance to help you integrate the use of technology in your classroom, both teacher-led and student-led.

Is the course appropriate for me?

This will be appropriate for any teacher who is teaching the new maths AS/A levels, particularly those responsible for encouraging the use of technology in a maths department.

What background knowledge will be expected?

We will assume you have taught at least the pure content of AS Mathematics.

What do I need to bring on the day?

A pen and a laptop. Your laptop should have GeoGebra Classic 5 installed on it. GeoGebra Classic 5 is available free from https://www.geogebra.org/download. We will provide a graphical calculator, for use on the day, and a delegate pack.
