Maths in the secondary science curriculum RX016

This course develops skills in three mathematical areas students may find challenging in a science context: graphs, standard form and equations


Develop your teaching of key areas of mathematics in the science curriculum. You will be able to develop strategies to support the teaching of graphs to enable students to sketch, interpret, draw and find lines of best fit as well as more general skills required to manipulate 'number', such as rounding, standard form and links to appropriate units. As well as developing specific skills, you will consider how to build confidence in students to enable them to solve and manipulate equations. 



You will be able to:

  • develop strategies and activities to convey the purpose of graphs in science by developing the skills of sketching, interpreting and drawing graphs
  • develop strategies and activities to understand the links between rounding, standard form and the use of units in a scientific context
  • explore strategies and activities to develop fluency in solving and manipulation equations in a scientific context
