Second of my blogs about the new Maths GCSE was published by Collins yesterday. This one is about delivering the new Higher Tier and the implications for teaching content, teaching style, learning style and mini-investigations. Have a look and see if you agree. Is it too visionary?
Blog gone up this afternnon. Have a read of my thoughts on delivering the Foundation Tier. Hopefully this will, at least, stimulate some ideas and come conversations. Get involved…….
One of the strategies I mention in the blog that Collins will release later today is that of mini investigations that bring together a number of topics. This could be a really cool element of your scheme of work because it allows for some open-ended independant learning. Independant learning is one aspect that I will be trying to develop to a greater degree next year – but want to start with some of my current Y9 after the Easter break.
Plug into the Collins blog area to get an idea of what I’m suggesting.
Collins are hosting its inaugural online GCSE Maths Festival next week – 24th-25th March. Do take a look at what will be happening, sign up, and join in! I’ve written the blog that appears on Monday – Delivering the Foundation Tier of the new GCSE.
