Mathematical Thinking at GCSE
The Mathematical Thinking for GCSE project is for secondary maths teachers looking for practical and theoretical elements to address their students’ GCSE attainment. The stated aims of the KS4 Programme of Study are that, through working on the content, students should develop mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. While mathematical thinking is a key feature of all of these, the focus of this Work Group is to support teachers in developing their understanding of mathematical thinking as it relates to problem-solving and reasoning, using practical task types to explore what it means for students to get better at mathematical thinking and what this looks like in the classroom.
This Work Group will be run by Zoe Redmill, Maths teacher at The Romsey School.
These session will initially be held via Zoom, however depending on Government guidelines, we may be able to offer some face to face session in the Spring and Summer term. All sessions need to be attended for consistency.
