Edgbarrow School Teacher Network

Use of Calculators and Graphical Calculators in the new A level


Edgbarrow Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of Mathematics in the Crowthorne, Bracknell and Wokingham area of Berkshire to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet termly and the programme is planned by teacher request and will include informal sessions and training events.


Use of Calculators in the New A level

The new specifications have an increased emphasis on using graphical calculators to solve problems, so students who don’t make full use of the features available may be at a disadvantage.

This CPD session will explore what can be done on a graphical calculator and how to use it more efficiently in lessons and in exams.
