Mathematical Thinking for GCSE, Redriff Primary School, Tuesday, 28. January 2020

Mathematical Thinking for GCSE Led by Chris Olley
A highly experienced Secondary Maths Specialist. Chris ran the PGCE Secondary maths for King's College, London for many years. Prior to that he was Head of Maths for a Lewisham secondary school. This is the fourth year that Chris will be involved in running the Mathematical Thinking for GCSE Professional Development for London South East, which is a very popular program nationally. 

This Work Group offers teachers and their departments high quality support to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment at GCSE. A wide range of examples and activities suitable for classroom use will be presented built on an increasing body of expertise. Participants will gain access to this stimulating further developments and collaborations.
Reasoning and problem solving are at the heart of the mathematics curriculum at GCSE and represent a key teaching and learning challenge for mathematics departments. Many departments will be considering not only the long-term development of these skills across KS3 and into KS4, but also the immediate needs of current KS4 pupils facing the challenges of the GCSE. The Work Group aims to support both these aspects through professional development activities focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches. 
Participation also offers opportunities for the engagement of the wider department. The approaches are accessible to all teachers (including non-specialist) and aim to support the development of reasoning and problem-solving skills for all pupils across all topics. They aim to develop these skills as part of all lessons thus deepening understanding of the content at the same time.
