Subject Knowledge Development
I feel it is about time i reflected on my subject development.
A few months ago i was pleased to have mastered Mechanics and have taught some lessons to my PP1 pupils. this placement i have taught c2 every week and am very settled with this. i would have liked to have had practice teaching c4 but this was not available to me.
My revision has been slow but the thing that has helped me the most is that my brother is taking his A Levels now and has high expectations from me. This really pushed me to pick up C3 and C4. i was pleased to find that c4 isn't as scary as i thought it was.
Differentiation and Integration are by far my favourite topics and i could sing and dance around them all day. i spent a while going over the proofs for them and would have loved to have explained it to some pupils.
Parametric curves confuse me slightly, but only because i don't think i could explain the reasoning behind it so clearly.
Vector are straight forward enough but their proofs are something i need to work on.
All in all, i have been pleased with my development over the year. there is always room for more, and more work on proofs and theory would benefit me greater so that i really know the top end. i am hoping to have developed my Further Maths skills over the course of the next year.
