Challenging Topics at GCSE Session 1

15th January 2020, 9:30am-12:00pm
Venue: St Patrick's RC High School
Challenging Topics at GCSE Ratio & Proportion

In many respects, the GCSE, first taught in autumn 2015 and examined in summer 2017, still feels new, and throws up new challenges for teachers and pupils alike. In 2017-2018 there was a Maths Hubs pilot project which explored ways of teaching those GCSE maths topics teachers found challenging to teach, and students found challenging to learn. In 2019-2020, this work will continue. Work Groups will explore effective ways of teaching some of these topics, both to address the immediate needs of the incoming KS4 pupils, but also, crucially, taking a longer-term view by considering development in KS3. The aim will be to get to grips with all the underpinning content of a topic, exploring misconceptions and effective pedagogical approaches for each element.
