Interactive Mathematics Teaching and Learning at Key Stages 3 & 4 plus Levels 1 & 2 in Further Education

Maths
OfSTED reports on observations made during inspections often criticise maths teachers for creating environments in which mostly 'passive' learning is taking place. This course will provide teachers with a variety of 'high-tech' and 'low-tech' activity-based-approaches to all areas of the curriculum and help you integrate different learning styles into schemes of work.

Interactive Mathematics Teaching and Learning at Advanced Level

Maths
OfSTED reports on observations made during inspections often criticise maths teachers for creating environments in which mostly 'passive' learning is taking place.

Interactive Mathematics Teaching at Higher and Advanced Higher Levels

Maths
Mathematics teachers are often criticised for creating environments in which mostly 'passive' learning is taking place.
This course will provide teachers with a variety of 'hightech' and 'low-tech' activity-based approaches to all areas of the curriculum that integrate different learning styles into curriculum delivery - rather than simply regarding mathematics as a series of techniques to learn by rote.

Introducing Mathematics in the International Baccalaureate

Maths
The course will begin with a brief overview of the IB Diploma and the mathematics curriculum within the IB. An important component of the assessment in the Diploma is the Portfolio of investigation and modelling tasks.

A major part of this workshop will explore effective use of tasks that fit the Portfolio criteria.

KS3 and GCSE Maths and Data Handling: "Hands-on" Autograph Training.
