Focus on solutions to questions is good, but additional info on suggestions for how to teach the content would be great.

For a “preparing to teach” course, you needed a high level of understanding. I feel the presentation etc was more targetted to people already teaching extension 1. pace of content too quick to write notes and listen.

Target audience should have been for teachers who have just started or little experience ext 1+ maths. For a preparation course, it was too content driven, and didn’t really explore the different avenues of the syllabus, and offer bey teaching points. Morris knows his Mathematics but expects all attending is at his level.

Great explanation of the techniques used to “break down” the hard questions. Tips were very useful for teaching topic, answering questions in HSC context and marking scheme applied.
