Maths in Science – Thursday 6th December 18

Maths in Science went ahead at Nottingham University yesterday. Greg Thomas came in to give several hints and tips.

How do you feel about equation triangles? 

He suggested that whilst they have their place, they may hinder progression and if students can calculate kinetic energy them why do they need a triangle for speed, distance and time?! 

It brought about a fair amount of discussion around the room.

Greg also shared the Mathematics programmes of study for key stages 1, 2 and 3 to underpin the context of the level of maths students are now taught.

Plenty of ideas for practical use in the classroom and lovely cake provided by the University.
