Maths on Monday will cover a range of topics for all teachers of GCSE Physics / Science. These fortnightly CPD sessions have been designed to support non-specialist teachers who wish to develop their understanding of the underlying Maths required by the GCSE specifications. In addition, Physics specialists will improve their understanding of why their students sometimes find the maths aspects of the course challenging.
Session 06: Graphs 1 with Liz Nourshargh
I have never ceased to be amazed at the scales that some students manage to come up with when graph plotting. In our first Maths on Monday session on graphs, we will include some hints and tips to improve your students’ graphs. We will then look at the link between a graph and the equation of a straight line to find its gradient and intercept; this will be further developed in session 2 to solve problems in GCSE Physics.
This session will last for 1 hour, with 45 minutes for the main presentation and 15 minutes for questions.
Next session: 24 January 2022 – Adding and Resolving Vectors with Liz Nourshargh
All future events will be listed in the “Maths on Monday” TalkPhysics group HERE.
