Challenging topics at GCSE

Suitable for secondary school maths teachers and heads of department. Participants in the 2018/19 Work Group are welcome to participate again.

Each Work Group will explore a single GCSE topic in depth. Participation will require attendance at four workshops spread across the year and include gap tasks. Any work produced will be shared across the hubs, giving access to a range of challenging topics

Expectations of participants and their schools

  • Attend the Work Group sessions and carry out a series of follow-up tasks within their own classrooms related to teaching the challenging topic being explored.
  • Work with other members of their maths department, as appropriate, to develop the teaching of the challenging topic.
