Challenging Topics at GCSE


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 focus on participant teachers working together to ‘unpick’ (i.e. analyse, deconstruct and trace through the curriculum) a challenging topic from GCSE Mathematics.  Participants will develop insight into the associated difficulties and misconceptions to support teaching in the short term, but also consider the implications for longer term curriculum design


We are hoping to be able to run these sessions as face to face Work Groups, however these will move online if needed as we will closely monitor and follow the latest Government Guidance.
