Coffee and Pi (Oxfordshire Teacher Network)

Core Mathematics - Managing the Mixed-ability Classroom + Pre-release Material and What to Do with it


Coffee and Pi is a network meeting for teachers in Oxfordshire secondary schools as part of the Oxfordshire Mathematics Community. A post-16 group, funded by AMSP, meets half-termly, allowing teachers of Core Maths and of A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. The programme is planned in response to teacher requests and is a mixture of presentations and discussions. Additionally, an 11-16 group meets half-termly.


Managing the Mixed-Ability Core Maths Classroom + Pre-release Material and What to Do with it

Bring your issues (and any strategies if you have them!) for discussion - a challenge shared is a challenge halved!

Of course the range of abilities, experiences and interests can be a blessing as well, so please be ready to share the high points too.

And we'll also look at the Pre-release Material and discuss ways of using this effectively in the classroom.


11-16 group:

From Cradle to Rave: Universal Concepts from Primary to Further Maths

How does your teaching take account of what has gone before and what is coming next? Looking at the big picture for some key concepts.


Sandwich tea provided!
