How to support your child in becoming a fantastic problem solver

Problem Solving! It is the number one area that children and parents want help with and unsurprisingly so. 50-60% of the GCSE Maths paper is made up of 'problem solving' questions.

So how can we become better at problem solving? Are there any general techniques that actually work?

Join Rachel, one of our maths authors here at Eedi, to find out more about the types of problems maths students face and learn some general techniques that you can use to help your child master problem solving.

The session will have hands on examples for you to practise and learn how to support your child and will be followed with an exclusive at-home resource pack for your child to work through, trying out the new techniques.

Two ideas for improving GCSE revision

The countdown to this year’s GCSE Maths exams is well and truly on. So, I thought it would be worthwhile sharing two ideas for effective revision lessons that I have picked up during my recent visits to schools.

CPD Tip: New Coaching Case Studies

I thought I would share two more case studies from the schools and teachers I have been lucky enough to work with over the last few weeks. The first case study focuses on modelling and the second focuses on checking understanding.
