Event Description
“Why do they always forget?” – a cry of frustration familiar to many who have taught Foundation Tier GCSE. There are many students who clearly have the potential to gain a Grade 4 or 5, but who seem to have a problem retaining mathematical facts and processes.
Why is this? This is the question this course seeks to answer. We will explore how we can help these perfectly intelligent and capable young people turn things around and gain the grades they need to give their life-chances a kick-start.
The day is divided into two equal halves, to enable the course to be shared between different delegates if this is more convenient for schools
Training objectives

• explore ways to improve students’ abilities and confidence in problem-solving; and
