Using Models and Modelling in Science Lessons.

An essential part of KS3, GCSE and post-16 sciences, teachers use models all the time to convey complex ideas (even if sometimes they do not know they are doing it!); and students are required to use and critique scientific models when they apply their understanding.   In this session, you will explore various models in science (physical, diagrammatic, abstract, mathematical etc.), and develop effective approaches to the using them in lessons - leading to engaging classroom activities, deeper understanding and better assessment outcomes.
