Exeter Teacher Network

The Art of Teaching Mathematical Problem Solving


Exeter Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet termly and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions.


In this meeting we will be focussing on what it means to teach problem solving. Does the way in which you teach mathematical problem solving differ significantly from your day-to-day teaching of mathematics and, if so, how? How do your students respond and how do you track their progress in this particualr respect? Where do you turn to look for inspiration/ideas/support?

This meeting will be led by Dave Gale from Churchill School in Somerset. Dave has been a member of the TES maths panel since 2011, reviewing thousands of maths resources and sharing many of his own. He has taught A level maths for many years, taught Core Maths for the first time in September 2018 and writes the Reflective Maths blog.

There will be plenty of time to discuss other matters during the meeting - if you have any suggestions of items you would like to include in the agenda please suggest it in the space provided in the Google Form that is linked from this page.
