There are many topics and skills taught in schools where Maths and Science are complementary, but there also areas where the departments may take different approaches or use alternative language. These include: graph interpretation, rearranging formulae, significant figures, y = mx + c, and more.



We can support you in identifying the CPD support that you need, provide CPD activity directly from our programme of courses, or work with you to tailor the content to meet your requirements.

Who is it for?

In this session we will look at techniques where schools have been successful in working together, to the benefit of both departments. We will aim to:

  • draft a joint departmental policy using the template provided;
  • engage with a number of short teaching ideas from tutors Alan Denton and Paul Hammond;
  • discuss best practices for teaching some mathematical skills used in science lessons.

Schools should aim to bring a member from both the Science and Maths departments, to jointly create a comprehensive draft policy ready to take back to both departments for discussion and - hopefully - sign off!
