Mathematics in science teaching: maths language and skills for GCSE science RA210 / F02
There is an increased mathematical demand in science and a greater understanding is necessary to accelerate learning and raise attainment.
This course explores the typical weaknesses in mathematics that hinder students' ability to understand and solve scientific problems. It will give teachers an increased confidence in teaching the mathematical aspects of science and the skills and strategies to meet these requirements.
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
