Maths in science (North Herts Enthuse Partnership) - Invitation only MB214 / A18
This is a bespoke course for the North Herts Enthuse Partnership and is invitation only.
There is significant overlap between science and mathematics curricula, but students’ experience of shared topics is often very different in the two subjects. Are applications from science regularly used to explore concepts in maths lessons? Are the mathematical techniques that students learn in science developed with understanding?
This course aims to identify common content, and explore ways of teaching that develop sufficient mathematical understanding whilst providing fluency in the skills required for science. The course is designed for teachers of GCSE science and teachers of GCSE maths. Experience shows that the most is gained from this course if a science teacher and a maths teacher from the same school attend together.
- explore the requirements of the mathematics and science specifications
- experience the mathematical content in science examinations
- discuss what makes good teaching
- consider practical models for departments working together
- create an action plan to be implemented back in school
