Professional Development activity - 2 hour learning module
Each week the Secondary Magazine will include a Professional Development activity. Available in PDF format, this series of learning modules are ideal for giving a focus to a department meeting or inset session.
Each week we will publish a new learning module, which over the weeks will build up in to a shopping list of PD activities so that you can pick and choose the materials that best suit your own development needs.

The first twelve modules will cover the following areas: Self Evaluation, Why do we teach Mathematics?, Mathematics learning script, Pathways and option: KS3 to KS5, Mathematical vocabulary, AfL: Using the lesson objective - overview, Group Work, C/D Borderline, Revision latest, Technology for learning, Questioning script and AfL: Formative use of summative tests.

Mathematical vocabulary
This week's module deals with the use of mathematical vocabulary..
This module is designed to look at literacy in mathematics and how it might be developed in the mathematics classroom. Subject-specific vocabulary is considered in terms of examination requirements and students’ ability to read, write, listen and speak.

This module contains many forms and writing activities, so please download the pdf version to print out and complete.
