Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub are delighted to offer you the opportunity to take part in some research into Challenging Topics at GCSE: Quadratics.
A FUNDED programme for Secondary Maths teachers and their departments focusing on Quadratics. Through a series of four workshops and gap tasks teachers will analyse what makes Quadratics challenging; explore misconceptions; analyse exam style questions and identify quick wins for year 11. Teachers will also identify prior knowledge required and investigate scaffolding and progression during KS3 to ensure success in GCSE.
The Work Group will consist of pairs of teachers and each pair will comprise one teacher with a curriculum responsibility within their department and one other teacher, a non-specialist. We will, however, consider a single teacher from a school where two are unavailable.
