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 for students to be successful in A-level physics.

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: sketching, interpreting and drawing graphs 
  • 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 constant acceleration 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
