Mathematical Thinking for the GCSE

NW Maths Hub 3 would like to offer ALL secondary colleagues a chance to attend the following programme:

Mathematical Thinking for the GCSE

This programme is FREE of Charge

Overview of the programme:

Teachers or departments keen to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment at GCSE are encouraged to take part in this project. Work Groups will explore professional development activities focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches. The activities themselves also offer a model for wider departmental engagement with professional development processes, and hence could provide the basis of an effective departmental improvement programme in this area.

Who should attend:

Secondary maths teachers wishing to begin or continue a programme of professional development to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics GCSE. The approaches attempt to address not only the longer development of these skills across all teaching, but also the needs of current KS4 students as they approach GCSE. In order to maximise the wider impact of the professional development across the department, it is suggested that each school sends two members of department, ideally one of whom is experienced and has some leadership responsibility within the department.

We would welcome Secondary schools from the following areas: Knowsley, Sefton, Liverpool, St Helens and Wigan areas to sign up to the programme.

To find out dates/times and further information please see the flyer attached.
