Maths Hubs Network Collaborative Projects 2019/2020
A series of 3 afternoon sessions for secondary maths teachers and heads of departments
Feedback from teachers and GCSE exam analysis indicates there are key areas of the curriculum that students continue to find challenging. This Work Group will explore effective ways of teaching some of these topics, both to address the immediate needs of the incoming KS4 students, 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. The approaches also contribute towards the development of a generic process which departments could use as a ‘toolkit’ to lead the improvement of teaching and learning in any identified area of the curriculum students find challenging.
Each session will explore a single GCSE topic in depth. Participation will require attendance at three workshops and include gap tasks. Any work produced will be shared across the hubs, giving access to a range of challenging topics.
All sessions take place at Pioneer Teaching School Alliance based at Harrison Primary School, Fareham, PO16 7EQ
The Maths Hubs Network, across England, works on national projects by running local collaborative work groups of teachers around national maths education priority areas. One such priority is to improve the subject knowledge of all adults in maths classrooms. These work groups use a common evaluation process, which collectively provides a body of evidence on the project’s outcomes. Participation in this work group will contribute to the delegates’ own professional learning and that of their colleagues, as well as contributing to the improvement of maths education at a national level.
Please note that a charge of £100 per participant for non-attendance without prior notice will be applied.
