MATHEMATICAL THINKING FOR GCSE

Recent changes in the mathematics curriculum attempt to push mathematical education toward fostering a deeper understanding of mathematical thinking. In this Work Group you will be looking at what mathematical thinking is, how it can be taught and how traditional questions can be adapted to engage pupils in thinking mathematically.

TEACHING FOR MASTERY DEVELOPMENT

Two teachers from your school will become ‘Mastery Advocates’ within their own departments and will form part of a two school Work Group. They will work closely with a Secondary Mastery Specialist to understand the principles and practices associated with teaching for mastery and will begin to work with teachers within their own departments to embed these principles and practices.

TEACHING FOR MASTERY EMBEDDING AND SUSTAINING

Each department, supported by their Mastery Advocates, will work on their action plan and develop collaborative ways of working which support their CPD.
