Hello!

Well, I'm just doing an assignment on teaching practices and Maths and the such! I've been looking it up, and it seems more of a practical approach, I was just wondering how different the experiences are in the classroom, and whether it seems effective etc.

Thanks

There is no great difference in approach and it is too early to tell anyway seven weeks into a two year course.

All GCSEs in mathematics changed in 2010 to contain functional elements. All that is different about the Linked Pair is that the functional elements are mostly located within the two Applications modules instead of being embedded throughout the qualification.

Can I suggest you look at KS3 instead as that changed significantly three years ago to a skills-based curriculum? The Process Skills are explained here:

Sorry to hear that aimes. You could ask the Head of Department privately if you could be moved into another set as you don't feel you are learning anything. Even if he or she says no, it is likely he or she will keep a closer eye on the situation. By the way, the rules of TSR say no text speak.
