Teaching mechanics: assumptions, misconceptions and Newton’s Laws

This workshop will cover basic assumptions, misconceptions and Newton’s Laws in the teaching of mechanics. There will be many activities used that can be taken very easily directly into the classroom.

Workshop leader: Dr Tom Roper
Tom taught mathematics in schools and colleges for 17 years, before joining the School of Education at the University of Leeds. Tom has given many talks on mathematics and has led workshops in schools and at conferences.  Currently he is President of the Mathematical Association.

Using rich tasks for teaching A level Mathematics

We will work together on some rich tasks offered by Underground Mathematics and consider the different ways in which the resources could be used to develop students’ mathematical thinking. We will also discuss how classroom video clips can be used for teacher professional development.

Workshop leader: Dr Lizzie Kimber
Lizzie taught A-level mathematics in schools for seven years. She has worked on curriculum projects as a Nuffield Foundation Education Fellow and has designed resources for NRICH and Underground Mathematics.

 15:00  Tea and departure

Fee: £10 including refreshments and lunch.

This event is organized by the Yorkshire Branch of the Mathematical Association.
