Developing mathematics skills for the new design and technology AS and A levels TY222
Improve your own subject knowledge and develop teaching strategies for teaching the mathematics content in the new design and technology AS and A levels.
Designed to support teachers to develop their subject knowledge in mathematics, helping to prepare you for delivery of the new AS and A levels in design and technology.
With support from our mathematics specialists, we will investigate the subject knowledge needed to solve design engineering, product design and fashion and textiles maths problems and develop teaching methods for delivery in the classroom. We will also help to identify areas of the KS3 design and technology curriculum where mathematics could be incorporated, increasing student exposure to the practical application of mathematics outside of their lessons, and better preparing students for the new KS4 and KS5 design and technology qualifications.
The mathematics content covered during the sessions will help with the teaching of rearranging equations, trigonometry, comprehension of graphs and calculations of measurements such as percentages, ratios, areas, volumes, geometry, statistics, and probability. (Note: we will not be covering projectile motion and calculus; from the design engineering specification.)
We will provide free teaching resources to support your teaching of mathematics, and our online community group will ensure that you are only one email away from our subject specialists when you go back to the classroom.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
You will be able to:
- develop your own subject knowledge in the teaching of mathematics
- create your own teaching resources to support teaching the new AS and A Levels
- identify areas in the KS3 and KS4 curriculum that can help develop mathematics skills, strengthening design and technology qualifications and maths across the curriculum
