KS3 course on visual algebra


Event Details

This is Day 2 of 2.

With Algebra taking up between 17-33% of GCSE exam papers and with more
challenging aspects of algebra now also in the foundation paper, this course
aims to assist teachers in developing strategies which support their students’
understanding of algebra, especially in KS3 and for the foundation GCSE paper.
The course will be run over two short twilights, with the key focus being the visual
understanding of algebra and other components which go with teaching algebra,
such as negative numbers. Visual methods are an important tool in teaching
algebra as they help students to reason and better understand this key topic in
the subject. By the end of the course, teachers will have a grasp of alternative
methods which will support their algebra lessons.

Aims of the Algebra CPD session

· Introduce the concept of CPA approach in algebra
· Explore various strategies which will enhance teaching and learning algebra
· Empower teachers with visual approaches to support slower learners
