Reasoning & Problem Solving
Reasoning and problem solving have been high on the agenda since the most recent reform of GCSE in 2017. This very practical course examines how to develop these skills over the five years of secondary school, looking at the journey in reasoning from giving explanations through to developing formal proof, and how to support students at all levels of attainment to access and succeed in high-value problem solving questions. You will leave the session with ideas and strategies to implement from the very next day.
Thinking through Variation
This session focuses on how teachers consider how the students in their classroom are learning and ensure all students develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. Focusing on variation, this thought-provoking session looks at how teachers can consider every aspect of a topic in order to develop strong foundations of understanding for their students. Covering many areas of the curriculum, the session focuses on the underlying structures behind the Mathematics and how to plan for these in a practical and accessible way.
