Proof, Problem Solving and Modelling in A level Maths Part 2 (DRAFT)

Online

Overview

This course will provide an opportunity for teachers of AS and A level Mathematics to consider how the overarching themes of Proof, Problem Solving and Modelling can be delivered. This second session will focus on Problem Solving.

ALlhough these themes have always been a part of A Level Mathematics they now account for a much larger proportion of the marks in the new Assessment Objectives, this was widely recognised as being the most challenging aspect of the new (2017) curriculum. With only one full cohort having experienced formal examination on this specification it is still a relatively new development.

Proof is covered in Part 1 and Modelling in Part 3. Booking links are here:
