Summary

There is an increased mathematical demand in in both the GCSE and A level physics specifications. This course is ideal for teachers of physics who wish to improve their understanding of the mathematics required to be successful in physics at GCSE and A level.

The course explores teaching strategies for a wide range of mathematical topics including:

  • proportional reasoning: dealing with proportionality in a physics context
  • algebra: solving equations, rearranging equations
  • graphs: drawing, reading information, finding gradients and interpreting
  • calculus: differentiation and integration what do the results tell us?
  • logarithms and exponential: what are they and how do we teach them?
  • mechanics practical: enhancing understanding, derivation of SUVAR+T equations, exploring moments

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
Pre or post night stays can be booked for an additional charge and are subject to availability. For more information email enquiries@stem.org.uk
