This four session course will look at integrating the mathematics syllabus with the science and technology syllabus, focusing on the working mathematically, working scientifically and working technologically processes and skills. How to plan ‘big picture’ investigations with your students that maximise the mathematics, particularly the measurement and data strands where the outcomes are explored, evidenced and evaluated in student learning.
Session 3 Driving STEM with mathematics
Exploring inquiry learning and creating driving questions that encompass the ‘big ideas’ of mathematics. How to balance student self-directed learning with explicit teaching of mathematics.
Session 4 Evidence of the M (Tues 7 November)
What does assessment of mathematics look like in STEM? Investigating how to map and track outcomes as part of inquiry-based learning and teaching strategies.
