Work groups for Secondary practitioners:
The London SW Maths hub will deliver nationally cooridinated projects being run by the maths hub network in 2017/2018 in the following areas:
Developing Teaching for Mastery at Secondary
This Work Group is part of a national project that explores areas of practice that are consistent with a teaching for mastery approach to the curriculum.
Y5-Y8 Continuity Development
A collaborative CPD programme over 2 days with a gap task. This programme will involve upper KS2 and lower KS3 teachers coming together to observe a year 6 and a year 7 maths lesson, exploring the principles of teaching for mastery and how these can be put into practise across phases.
Preparing for the new GCSEs: developing reasoning in KS3
An exciting project spread across three sessions with gap tasks in between for participants to try out materials and approaches in school.
Mathematical Thinking for GCSE Effectiveness
This Work Group offers teachers and their departments nationally coordinated support to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment in the new GCSE.
Challenging topics at GCSE development workgroup
Work Groups in this national project, across the Maths Hubs Network in England, aim to gather evidence from teachers’ early experiences with the new maths GCSE, with particular emphasis on how a new mix of challenging topics (for students and teachers) has emerged.
