Speed dating in Year 11 Maths

Year 11 are well under way with their GCSE revision in all subjects. In maths students help each other by “speed dating”.

Each desk has a ‘specialist’ who is a student that excelled in that week’s homework and on the other side of the desk, a ‘date’. The ‘specialist’ helps to explain how they answered questions that their ‘date’ got wrong. Students move around each specialist after a 5 minute visit. This supports both students: it consolidates the learning of the expert and helps the visitor hearing how a peer answered the question.

It also gives the students a break from the class teacher’s voice, but we are still on hand to help with any questions.
