Secondary Education (Mathematics)

This course is workshop based so that students have the opportunity to participate actively in each and every session. A variety of teaching approaches are considered for use in the classroom including problem solving, investigational work and the use of information technology. Initially, students concentrate on how to plan lessons and how to incorporate variety in to their teaching. A key aspect of the course is the opportunity to develop your teaching so as to cater for the different learning styles of pupils.
