This course will focus on the challenging aspects of the previous curriculum that have been retained on the current GCSE curriculum. This will include algebraic proof and circle theorems. There will also be a focus on new content to both GCSE Foundation and Higher Tier including invariance with transformations and area under a curve. Delegates will identify some of the pedagogical methods used to support students with comprehending and retaining content at a greater level of challenge. All delegates will receive a copy of the resources discussed to support continued professional development and enhanced teaching and learning of GCSE mathematics
Who is this course for?
This course is for teachers who are teaching maths outside their personal specialism and may not have studied mathematics beyond KS4 or may need a refresher on subject knowledge.
It is specifically aimed at:
- non-specialist teachers who could potentially teach secondary mathematics in addition to, or as their main subject
- non-specialist teachers who are currently teaching mathematics (either full-time or in addition to the specialist subject)
- teachers who are looking to return to the profession
