Title: Enriching the teaching of A level mathematics: a study day for teachers.
Presenters: Tom Roper (pre-lunch) Lizzie Kimber (post-lunch)
Date: Saturday, 10th March 2018
Time: 11am for 11:15am
Teaching mechanics: assumptions, misconceptions and Newton’s Laws
This workshop will cover basic assumptions, misconceptions and Newton’s Laws in the teaching of mechanics. There will be many activities used that can be taken very easily directly into the classroom
Using rich tasks for teaching A level Mathematics
We will work together on some rich tasks offered by Underground Mathematics and consider the different ways in which the resources could be used to develop students' mathematical thinking. We will also discuss how classroom video clips can be used for teacher professional development.
Venue: University of Leeds, School of Mathematics, Room MALL 1, Leeds LS2 9JT
