Ongoing Assessment of Core Maths
How do the mark schemes of Core Maths assessments reflect the aims and ethos of the Core Maths course? Should the way we assess Core Maths feel different to other maths courses? This session explores what teachers of Core Maths should look to value in the work of their students.
You only have to open a newspaper.....or social media application.... to be bombarded with graphical information. Are our students being equipped to deal with this information overload? This session will focus on how information presented in graphical forms provides teachers with an opportunity to inspire curiosity in their learners, deepen understanding and hook them into contexts within and beyond the curriculum.
Resourcing and Lesson Design
How do teachers go about finding or creating resources for Core Maths lessons? With an emphasis on authentic contextualisation and problem solving opportunities exist when teaching Core Maths to use fresh, current ideas but does this mean that your weekends and evenings will be lost in a stuggle to resouce your Core Maths lessons? This session aims to offer solutions, explore possibilites and illustrate that with an open mind and a flexible approach creating exciting, fulfilling Core Maths lessons can be achieved with minimal effort.
