Teacher Network Meeting - Online

What is Proof?


The Hull and East Yorkshire Teachers Network is an AMSP funded project, allowing teachers of Maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. 

We meet three times a year and the programme is a mixture of informal sessions and speaker-led training events.


  • To develop strategies to help students develop the confidence and skills to attempt Proofs
  • To look at some Geometric Proofs
  • To look at some common Algebraic Proofs
  • To share resources for Proof

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers who are currently teaching Mathematics to KS3 & GCSE students.

Please bring your favourite proof worksheet or activity to share with colleagues attending the Network. 


  • What is Proof? What to expect at GCSE
  • Different types of Proof
  • Geometric
  • Algebraic
  • Resources

Materials and Equipment

The AMSP uses Big Blue Button (BBB), which is an online conferencing system that allows participants to collaborate in real time. It is easy to use and has features which enable a tutor and participants to communicate live on-line by using audio, video, instant messaging and, if needed, writing on a shared virtual whiteboard.

The session will be remote and will take place on the Big Blue Button platform, as such you will need a laptop/desktop computer or other internet enabled device. If possible please use a machine with a microphone enabled to allow for chat with other delegates.

We will set up the classroom and send you the classroom link, via e-mail, shortly before the session is due to start. 

BBB is designed to be used on a variety of platforms but you will get the best experience via a desktop or laptop computer, running either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as the browser. Note: Internet Explorer and Edge are not suitable currently.

It is advised that you check the requirements to access the online classroom in advance of the live session that you will be attending. You can do this at any time. 

Don’t forget to bring your own tea and biscuits!
