Delivering the course with our strategic partners, the Science Learning Partnership, we want to work with and develop the practice of maths and science teachers teaching the new maths and science GCSEs in schools. The maths content of the new science specification is up to 40% in some cases and requires teachers and students to use complex mathematical processes. Science teachers have already expressed concerns at the amount of mathematics that they will need to teach. The intention is to develop the pedagogy of teachers when teaching maths in science to apply the principles of teaching for depth of understanding, and ensure that the science and maths departments are working together to deliver a coherent programme of study for the children in their care.
Who is this for?
Secondary schools from our region who would like to develop partnership and pedagogy in their maths and science departments. A member of staff from the maths department and the science department should attend.
29th November 2018 / 24th January 2019 / 4th April 2019 / 27th June 2018
All dates run 12.30pm – 4pm, and take place at The Langdale Centre, Wallsend, NE28 0HG
The programme is free to attend and participant schools will receive teacher release funding of £600 upon completion of the programme.
