Raising Mathematics attainment for middle to lower attaining GCSE pupils
What are barriers to raising the mathematics attainment of GCSE pupils? Identifying the emotional and cultural aspects of learning mathematics that can transform pupils' beliefs about themselves as learners of mathematics. An introduction to multiple representations of concepts that support conceptual development and reasoning.
Deepening pupils' understanding of numeric and algebraic structures using images and contexts that relate to the pupils' experience. Continue to develop understanding of multiple representations of concepts that support conceptual development and reasoning.
Reasoning from key known facts in geometry. Further develop connections within and between concepts using images, physical learning models and reasoning.
Integrating evidence informed mathematics models into GCSE classrooms. Developing structured classroom enquiry in mathematics so that the models learned in the course can be applied and the impact on learning and problem solving can be systematically analysed.
Aims of the course:
The aim of the workshop series is to allow participants to reflect on models for learning mathematics that foster deep, relational understanding of mathematics. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of effective mathematics pedagogy, leading to higher attainment and achievement.
