Content

Agenda:

  • Welome, Networking & Refreshments
  • Sharing best practice (resources)
  • Embedding Problem Solving into A-level Mathematics

The teacher network will always start (from 4:15pm) with an opportunity for you to meet colleagues from other schools and network (with refreshments to hand).

Sharing Resources

At 4:30pm we'll start with an opportunity to share best practice; in this case resources!  Please bring ~10 paper copies to share and email Gemma a copy of the resource.  Please don’t spend long selecting a resource, but you may want to consider:

  • Did it help with a misconception/preconception?
  • What did you students think about it?
  • Did the students react differently to it than you anticipated?
  • Did it support students to develop any skills?

You'll have around 2 minutes to talk about the resources which could be anything you've used with a secondary maths class(KS3, KS4 or Post 16).  Everyone will have access to the electronic resources after the network meeting; come with one idea and leave with many!

Embedding Problem Solving

We know that teachers struggle to include problem solving into lessons due to time and planning pressures. This session will look at two quick ways to ammend assessment questions which will develop student problem solving skills through internal questionning.
