Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub are delighted to offer you the opportunity to take part in some research into Challenging Topics at GCSE
A FUNDED programme for Secondary Maths teachers and their departments focusing on a challenging topic. Through a series of four workshops and gap tasks teachers will analyse what makes a challenging topic; 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.
If you would like to get involved then please complete the expression of interest form below and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.

As part of our role in leading the Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub, we collect and hold a certain amount of data about individuals involved in our work. The data includes name, role (with respect to hub work), school, email address, NCETM username and (in some cases) telephone number. The agreement between us and the Department of Education requires us to monitor and evaluate our work as a Maths Hub, and this is the legal basis for the data that we hold, on, for example, participation in the Work Groups that we coordinate. Such data is reported on a regular basis to the NCETM.
