Summary

There is an increased mathematical demand in science and a greater understanding is necessary to accelerate learning and raise attainment.

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • appreciate how weaknesses in understanding mathematics can lead to difficulty in understanding science
  • identify pedagogies to address these weaknesses
  • understand how mathematics is used to make simple descriptions and predictions in science and how this might be supported by software examples
  • access mathematics in science resources
