'Where do I start ?'
Helping students to unlock strategies to solve problems in geometry.
By exploiting connections between various KS3 and KS4 geometric content, we will compare different approaches to solve particular problems in shape and space. This will lead us to exploring strategies that can be employed by teachers to help their students find a path through the unfamiliar.
