Discover Quadratics for New Teachers of GCSE

Portsmouth

Overview

GCSE Mathematics is more demanding than ever, with new Higher Tier content supporting a national drive to increase the number of students studying maths post-16.

This day follows the development of quadratics from Key Stage 3 to A level Mathematics, considering a range of ideas whilst also reflecting on the teaching and consider the 'big picture' of each topic within the wider curriculum.
