A range of questions from past papers were discussed in detail. Key ideas and approach elaborately explained which I will be using in my teaching this year.

The course was, as usual, engaging and well presented. However it was a course for teachers, I feel, who have already taught the course. As a first time teacher of Ext 2, many of the concepts I have not yet learned. Especially as I came from English System. A bit of warning that it was a course for existing 2 Unit Teachers.

I enjoyed the course and found it very well presented. Morris did a great job in providing a good atmosphere in which to work with and share ideas. The questions were carefully selected and well thought out.

I would have liked to have attended the ‘Preparing to Teach Ext 2 Maths’ first (which is next week). I wonder also if there are any overarching themes to theses questions which could be extracted.
