In this project, Work Groups consist of teachers working together to unpick a challenging topic. Participants develop insight into the associated difficulties and misconceptions to support teaching in the short term but also consider the implications for longer term curriculum design. The approaches developed can be used across mathematical areas and key stages.
Vanessa is an experienced NCETM Accredited PD Lead and had led this work group over the past 2 years.
