Teacher Network Meeting (East Midlands - Derby)

Raising Confidence at GCSE

Overview

With the new GCSE in its third year, a skill that many students find difficult is the ability to reason mathematically. One of the many challenges for their teachers is to help them to develop their ability to follow a line of enquiry, conjecture relationships and generalisations, and develop an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language in line with the requirement of the National Curriculum.

A new suite of courses aimed at Raising Confidence with Reasoning, Problem Solving and Higher Level Mathematics, which provide strategies and resources to use in the classroom with secondary students is available to all teachers. More info can be found here: Raising Confidence courses

In this meeting we would like to welcome all teachers who teach some kind of mathematics at KS4 level (or below) to bring you a “taster” of these Raising Confidence PD days.
