Practical problem solving in the mechanics classroomOttery St Mary
This course aims to provide simple practical and problem solving ideas that can be used with students studying mechanics at A level, as well as a range of concept questions for promoting discussion and testing student understanding. All the ideas used will be ones that teachers can take away and replicate with a minimum of equipment and resources. All delegates will be encouraged to carry out a range of activities.
- Gain a number of ideas that can be used in the A level mechanics classroom for introducing concepts using practical or problem solving approaches.
- Network and share ideas with fellow teachers of A level mechanics.
- Increase delegates' awareness of interesting and engaging methods for deepening students' conceptual understanding of the subject.
