Making Links between Mechanics and Pure Mathematics

Wendover

Overview

Thinking outside the 'module box'

Effective mathematics teaching encourages students to make links across the mathematics curriculum. This half day professional development course looks at the opportunities for making links between mechanics and pure mathematics.

Aims

  • To empower teachers to move away from a compartmentalised approach to mathematics teaching, in the spirit of the new specifications.
  • To provide concrete examples and resources for immediate implementation.

Who will benefit from attending?

All teachers of mechanics in A level Mathematics including experienced teachers, those who are new to teaching mechanics, and those who have little or no experience of non-modular teaching. We will assume knowledge of the mechanics content of A level Mathematics, but not beyond.
