Teaching a 'top set' in KS4: success now, success later
A series of seven online sessions are planned for December and January. The National Curriculum says that students “who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content”:this sounds lovely in theory, but how do we provide this in practice?
Robert Wilne will suggest an answer to this question. In the course you will examine and reflect on questions and tasks that
- catalyse students’ mathematical reasoning
- strengthen their problem-solving resilience
- deepen their conceptual understanding
- improve their procedural fluency
Applications will open shortly: watch this space!
Further Maths Professional Development
King's Maths School has been running courses to enhance teachers' understanding of the subject content and associated pedagogy of A Level Further Mathematics. Most recently Robert Wilne, a highly experienced sixth-form teacher and PD leader, led six online 2-hour sessions focusing on the bigger picture and finer detail of the key core pure topics in May and June 2020. For further details, see the dedicated course page.
We hope to repeat this course again in the future.
