Improving Learning and Teaching at Higher Mathematics

Overview

This course examines a range of evidence informed approaches to enhance the effectiveness of teaching at Higher level. In particular we will look at:

-> Didactics and pedagogy for topics which pupils find problematic.

-> Developing the mathematician instead of “covering” the mathematics.

-> How we can use variation theory to create appropriate question sequences.

-> The importance of multiple representations and CPA.

-> Lessons from cognitive science and how these can be applied to enhance retention.
