Mathematical Thinking for GCSE

Suitable for all secondary maths departments and teachers wishing to begin or continue a programme of professional development to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics GCSE. The approaches attempt to address not only the longer development of these skills across all teaching, but also the needs of current KS4 students as they approach GCSE.

In order to maximise the wider impact of the professional development across the department, it is suggested, where possible, that each school sends two members of department, at least one of whom is experienced and has some leadership responsibility within the department.
