GCSE Mathematics

Starter activities to assess prior knowledge and consolidate learning

In these clips we see ideas of how to assess learners’ prior learning using starter activities. As you are viewing the clips, reflect on how you could adapt these
activities, or use others like them, to check understanding and consolidate learning.

Data handling – averages

Shape and space – area and volume

Shape and space – coordinates

Algebra – substitution

 

Practical activities to support learning

In these clips we see how using practical activities can enhance learning and motivate learners. As you are viewing the clips, reflect on how you could use practical activities in your lessons.

Area and perimeter of circles

Drawing 2D representations of 3D shapes

Volume of a cylinder

 

Case Studies

Building on learners’ understanding of transformations

In this clip we see an example of how to engage learners while looking at transformations. As you are viewing the clip, think about your own learners and whether you could use or adapt this activity to use with them.

The transparency used in this video is available in the Standards Unit resource, Improving learning in mathematics.

Building on learners’ understanding of algebra

In this clip we see how a practitioner uses active learning to assess learners’ understanding of algebra and then to consolidate their learning. As you are viewing the clip, consider your own learners and whether you could use or adapt these activities to use with them.

Some of the resources in this video can be found in the Standards Unit resource, Improving Learning in Mathematics.
