This will be of interest to any teachers who would like to introduce 16+ students to deeper mathematical problem-solving skills. The focus for this will be the Sixth Term Examination Paper (STEP) and Advanced Extension Award (AEA) mathematics examinations but the course will include materials suitable for use in general classes.
This course aims -
To provide teachers with an opportunity to think about, discuss and hear others’ experiences of supporting students to develop their problem-solving skills.
To give teachers’ time to work on problems themselves in order to gain insight into the challenges of supporting students to develop these skills.
To give information about the STEP and AEA examinations themselves.
To introduce teachers to useful resources to use with students and advice on how to set up problem-solving support in their own college/sixth form/organisation.
