IWG3 Secondary Maths in Science, The Langdale Centre, Friday, 29. November 2019

This project aims to support teachers to recognise opportunities to apply maths skills in science, and where skills in working scientifically can be taught or implemented in maths. By working together, maths and science leads and teachers will identify how to achieve both maths and science objectives symbiotically.

The programme, which is free to attend, runs over 4 half days: 

29th November 09:30 -12:30
10th February 12:30-15:30
30th March 12:30 -15:30
30th June 12:30-15:30

Who is this for?
Secondary schools from our region who would like to develop partnership and pedagogy in their maths and science departments. Both a maths and science lead should attend from your school.
What is involved?
3 x **** to **** workshops with the work group lead.
Gap tasks to audit provision in school and develop classroom practice.
Contribution to the online communities.
Contribution to evaluations of impact of the programme.
Intended Outcomes
To empower the teachers in school with the knowledge and skills to teach the mathematical elements of the science curriculum and maths in the context of science so that pupils understand and can use and apply those skills effectively.

Professional learning:

Improved subject knowledge, where needed
Effective planning and teaching of maths in a science context
Deeper appreciation of principles of mathematical pedagogy underpinning mathematical understanding
A deeper knowledge about which structures are appropriate to use and when
The establishment of a collaborative and supportive network, sustained through the use of an online community.

Teaching and/or leadership practice:

For leaders, an appreciation and understanding of the work of the Maths Hub and the impact on the planning, teaching and assessment of mathematics in science and maths
Improved mathematics pedagogy in the classrooms of these rural schools, with a particular focus on developing deeper understanding
Teachers and leaders will have an overview of the programmes of study matching the timings of content delivery across the maths and science departments.

Pupil achievement, attitudes, participation or experience:

All pupils will benefit from increased opportunities to explore maths in more depth in a science context
Pupils will be able to transfer skills across subject areas and contexts
KS2 performance will improve in both maths and science

Expectations of participants and their schools
Each school would send two participants: the maths lead and the science lead. All participants are expected to attend all the sessions and complete gap tasks in their schools between the sessions. They will also be asked to keep a learning log for their own use and contribute to the national evaluation process, probably through a short online survey after the Work Group has finished.
This programme is provided at no cost to the school. However, Great North Maths Hub will charge £40 for non-attendance or cancellation less than 7 days prior to each session.
When booking you will be asked to give your NCETM Username. We ask for this as we will use the NCETM website to coordinate your programme evaluations, in order to report to the DfE. If you do not already have an NCETM username, please create one here
Data Privacy
As part of our role in leading the Great North Maths Hub, we collect and hold a certain amount of data about individuals involved in our work. The data includes name, role (with respect to hub work), school, email address, NCETM username and (in some cases) telephone number. The agreement between us and the Department of Education requires us to monitor and evaluate our work as a Maths Hub, and this is the legal basis for the data that we hold, on, for example, participation in the Work Groups that we coordinate. Such data is reported on a regular basis to the NCETM.
