Mastering mathematics at key stage 3 MY218
Discover how to successfully make the transition between primary and secondary mathematics and develop techniques to establish problem solving skills
It is important that mathematics at key stage 3 builds upon the mathematical experiences students experience at primary school. Designed for teachers of mathematics at key stage 3, explore what is meant by mastery, consider the transition between primary and secondary school and the mapping of progression through key stage 3.
Develop techniques to establish problem solving skills and resilience in the context of hard to teach topics encountered in key stage three including fractions proportional reasoning, standard form and powers, the geometry of arithmetic and geometric sequences, exploring graphs using Geogebra, solving problems in three dimensions and Venn diagrams in probability.
Undertake a gap task and produce an action plan to embed into your teaching the skills developed in the course.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course. Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
You will be able to:
- develop a deeper understanding of the requirements of the key stage three mathematics specification
- consider approaches to teaching 'hard to teach' topics in key stage three
- complete a gap task giving the opportunity to put theory into practice
