Enhance your knowledge of graphs and functions to teach the maths curriculum
In this course, designed as a subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) for teachers, you’ll explore the topics of graphs and functions as part of the algebra curriculum for mathematics.
Led by experienced teachers, you’ll make links between different mathematical topics and develop an understanding of how certain methods work and why they work.
Improve your subject knowledge of graphs and functions to develop your teaching approaches
You’ll watch demonstrations of teaching approaches, unpick the underlying mathematics behind graphs and build your confidence in these topics.
You’ll appreciate why linear graphs and quadratic graphs are important in representing connections between variables, and will develop a fluency in the nature of these relationships.
Discover how graphs can solve problems and understand the concept of function notation
You’ll apply the use of graphs to display specific situations, find connections and solve an extensive array of problems.
You’ll also investigate how function notation can be used to describe transformations of graphs.
Learn from experienced experts at the National STEM Learning Centre
You’ll be guided throughout by maths subject specialists from the National STEM Learning Centre, both of whom have taught for substantial periods of time.
They have the combination of quality assured teaching resources to accompany the course, face to face CPD to form a blended learning experience and the expertise to make the learning experience appropriate for teachers of other subjects.
This course is specifically designed for teachers and educators who are not specialised in maths, but who are wanting to learn mathematical methods and improve their understanding of the subject.
It’s particularly suitable for new teachers and those studying teaching as a profession.
