Question 10 - Experience and assessment
Our current work is on the mapping of the maths content. We’re using the big ideas of Lynn Arthur Steen and others (On the Shoulders of Giants). One of the interesting things about the writing of Banchoff, Stewart et al. is that they make reference to experiences that students could be provided with well in advance of formalising them. Reflecting on our own UK curriculum, it seems that students are expected to meet, internalise and be assessed on new content in very short periods of time. We think we will be challenging that view.
