Since the introduction of a linear A level, curriculum coherence has become increasingly important. As teachers, we need to ensure that we allow our students to explore the links between different topics. This deepens their understanding and increases their versatility in problem-solving. In this talk, Rob shares ideas and resources for teaching coordinate geometry and suggest ways that we can link these ideas with other areas of the A level curriculum.

Rob has been teaching A level Maths and Further Maths since 2010. He is particularly interested in curriculum sequencing and teaching for understanding. He has recently co-authored a book "Teaching A Level Maths: content and pedagogy" with Susan Whitehouse. Rob works at Bishop Wordsworth's School in Salisbury.
