Code: 19MAT/001S Getting mathematics right at Key Stage 3

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.
