Challenging Topics in the New GCSE

This workgroup is for Secondary school maths teachers and heads of department.  Participants in the 2017-2018 Work Group are welcome to participate again.   

Each Work Group will explore a single GCSE topic in depth, establishing what the issues are and what the common misconceptions are, how these might be addressed through activities and questioning which promote deeper thinking and how teaching in KS3 might be modified or utilised to improve understanding for this topic at KS4.
