West Midlands Teacher Network

Analysing A level Mechanics Exam Questions

Overview

The West Midlands Mathematics Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We usually meet termly and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events. We try to provide meetings that look at pertinent issues that have an impact on the West Midlands area.

Agenda

  • A light buffet and drinks will be available from 16.00 with a meeting start at 16.30.

Content

In this teacher network meeting Sue De Pomerai will look at how the mechanics questions on the 2018 A level reflect the requirement for mathematical modelling and problem solving. We will include some teaching ideas and resources to help prepare students for their A level exams.

Sue used to work for MEI as Deputy Programme Leader for the FMSP where, amongst other things,  she developed the Teaching Mechanics course.  She is now trying, and mostly failing, to retire so she can spend more time sailing.
