### Outcomes

You will be able to:

- appreciate how weaknesses in understanding mathematics can lead to difficulty in understanding secondary 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 for teaching GCSE science
