Discover Quadratics for New Teachers of GCSE
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. It forms part of our Discover Maths for New Teachers of GCSE suite of courses, aimed at supporting teachers’ own understanding of key Higher Tier topics, so that they can confidently lead their students through GCSE into studying post-16 maths.
- Enhance subject knowledge at Key Stage 3 and explore how this topic is expanded upon for KS5 maths qualifications.
- Preparation for using classroom resources and powerful visual representations with students.
