Use of technology in teaching mathematics and A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics

This hands-on session will focus on activities for using graphical calculators to enhance students’ understanding of some of the main topics in the pure maths elements of A level Further Mathematics. There will be an opportunity to try some student tasks for complex numbers, matrices, polar curves, vectors and calculus as well as a discussion about how to integrate these into your lessons.

Graphical calculators will be provided for use during the session and no previous experience of using them is required.
