Core Maths: A Fresh Approach to Teaching Mathematics - Area Coordinator organised day

Plymouth

Overview

An engaging event focused on supporting teachers with the delivery of the increasingly popular Core Maths qualifications as well as contextualised problem solving in other maths courses or courses with mathematical content. This day has been designed to complement our other Core Maths professional development opportunities; all sessions are unique to the day.

Aims

  • To provide teachers with an opportunity to explore resources and teaching approaches useful for contextualised problem solving.
  • To give information about the different specifications, forms of assessment and to consider how Core Maths teaching approaches can complement those used in other courses.
  • To network with new and experienced teachers of Core Maths and, possibly, other subjects.

This course is suitable for anyone who is already teaching Core Maths this academic year, for teachers who are interested in finding out more prior to teaching Core Maths or teachers of other Level 3 courses which have mathematical requirements.
