Teaching Higher Mathematics
Date coming soon

This course is aimed at those teachers new to delivering Higher mathematics or those looking for new ideas or wishing to share. It has also acted as a refresher course for those who have not presented at Higher for a while. During the course we will examine: SQA conditions and arrangements; preparation for assessment (including NABS), planning, scheduling and their interrelationship; the collection of evidence for appeal purposes – exam balance and marking at Higher; approaches that might save you time; creation of IT resources to assist in delivery, assessment and problem solving; existing resources and record keeping. The whole syllabus is considered but focus is given to the topics that are traditionally considered awkward or difficult.

This course is aimed at those teachers new to delivering Advanced Higher mathematics or those looking for new ideas or wishing to share. It has also acted as a refresher course for those who have not presented at Advanced Higher for a while. During the course we will examine: SQA conditions and arrangements; preparation for assessment (including NABS), planning, scheduling and their interrelationship; the collection of evidence for appeal purposes – exam balance and marking at Advanced Higher; approaches that might save you time; creation of IT resources to assist in delivery, assessment and problem solving; existing resources and record keeping. Some extra time is spent on topics that traditionally students find awkward (e.g. Vectors), or lengthy (e.g. sequences or differential equations) or outside their comfort zone (e.g. number theory and proof).
