Teacher Network Meeting

Mathematics in Context at GCSE

Overview

During this session you will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the use of context when teaching mathematical concepts. We will also explore topical resources to take straight to your face-to-face or online lessons and ways of using these activities to encourage students to continue studying maths after GCSE.

Aims

  • To discuss and reflect on the use of context when teaching mathematical concepts
  • To try out resources for teaching mathematical concepts in 'real world' contexts
  • To discover ways of encouraging students to continue studying maths after GCSE
