Who will benefit from attending?
Current or prospective teachers of Core Maths, teachers of Geography, Biology, Psychology, Economics, Business, Sociology and other level 3 qualifications which have Maths content
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 form provides teachers with an opportunity to inspire curiosity in their learners, deepen understanding and hook them into contexts within and beyond the curriculum.
Teaching Percentages and Finance
Students have been learning about percentages since Primary school so why are they still causing problems for students beyond GCSE? During this session you will see how students at different levels approach similar problems, discuss how we can build on students’ prior experience and explore percentage change questions across a range of subjects. We will also explore resources for teaching students about personal finance.
Teaching Averages and Spread
During this session we will model approaches of the teaching of averages and standard deviation. We will also look at how they are assessed in Maths, Geography and Psychology A levels. If you are from a different subject area, we would love for you to bring examples of questions students must complete in your course.
