Problem Solving For All Students:

Supporting your students to develop problem solving skills. Mathematical problem solving is a key feature of GCSE and AS/A Level mathematics. It is clear from the subject-content documents for these qualifications that mathematical problem solving is not just for the highest-achieving candidates: it is a core part of mathematics that can and should be accessible to the full range of candidates.

In this meeting we will consider strategies to help students develop their confidence and problem solving skills. It will be an active session looking at ways to introduce problem solving to everyday teaching.

As this will be an interactive session we recommend that to get the most from the discussion you will need a microphone available and a webcam would enable even better communication.

The meeting will give the opportunity for people to share experiences, ideas and successes, and to seek advice from colleagues on any current issues or recent developments.   


  • To discuss ways to engage students with problem solving.
  • To try out resources for incorporating problem solving into everyday teaching.
