Chippenham Teacher NetworkProof in A level Maths
Chippenham Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet four times a year and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions.
There is an increased emphasis on Proof in the new A level specification.
During this session we will consider a range of different proofs to identify some key ideas that students should be aware of, and to discuss how to support students in making a start with unfamiliar proofs.
The main types of proof we will consider are
- Deductive proofs
- Proof by exhaustion
- Disproof by counter example
- Proof by contradiction
(We will not look at proof by induction as that is only in Further Maths)
