Event Description
No building is stronger than its foundations: a similar principle applies to the learning of mathematics – arguably more than in any other subject. For this reason, Key Stage 3 maths has never been more important: the training ground where understanding of many important concepts is developed and deepened.

This course will look at how to help students acquire this deep understanding, through the use of appropriate activities; the structure of schemes of work; and through the effective use of assessment.
Training objectives
Learning outcomes
By attending the session, participants will:

  • develop their understanding of how Key Stage 3 can be used to maximise students’ performance at GCSE

  • Identify the key building blocks it is necessary to put in place for future success in mathematics explore a range of rich activities which will help students gain a deep understanding of the subject explore successful policies for transition between Key Stages 2 and 3

  • discuss a range of assessment models which give a true picture of what students can do

Additional Information
Delegate should bring a copy of their Key Stage 3 scheme of work (either printed or electronic, whichever is more convenient).
