A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics

Problem solving is one of the overarching themes of the new A level Mathematics but more than that, it is a way to encourage students to develop their thinking skills and build confidence. In this session, we will look at some techniques for introducing problem-solving activities into the A level classroom. It will be an interactive session and problem solving will take place!
