Improving Problem Solving in Mathematics Through Inquiry-based Learning

Age 11 to 16

This one-day event at the Royal Society on Monday 11th November 2013 will provide an opportunity to explore aspects of secondary teaching, learning and assessment related to problem solving.

This is the final event to be held nationally as part of the work of the European funded project PRIMAS (Promoting Inquiry in Mathematics and Science Education across Europe) that has sought to stimulate teaching and learning with a problem-solving focus in mathematics and science.

With problem solving being highlighted in the new mathematics National Curriculum and GCSE assessment, this event gives a timely opportunity for teachers to learn about the outcomes of current projects (PRIMAS, NRICH, IMPULS of Japan, and Bowland lesson study) as well as hear of future developments through a number of new projects. Additionally there will be discussion of possibilities in assessment stimulated by one of the leading GCSE awarding organisations, AQA.

It is the intention, in addition to giving insight into these many developments, to produce a discussion document as proceedings of the day's event.

Please note that there is no charge for the event but as places are strictly limited it is important that you only book a place if you are able to attend.
