OU Presentation

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by dkelly000, Jul 10, 2012.

  1. Hello im new to this site but would some help and advice if possible. i have an interview coming up with the open university to do a PGCE in mathematics. i have been asked to do a presentation on a key area or aspect that relates in the national curriculum in the specialist subject area that i wish to teach. i am from northern ireland and was thinking about doing the presentation on current maths standards and how young people are coming out with lower maths grades. does this make sense or can someone point me in the right direction for a topic. thanks

  3. I think they are asking you to give a mathematics presentation. I would pick the bit of maths I was best at and "teach" what you know to the audience which will probably consist of the selection panel and the other interviewees. They will be looking more for a confident (within the bounds of the situation), clear, well illustrated presentation and subject knowledge rather than brilliant pedagogy. They won't expect you to be the finished article. That is part of the aim of the PGCE.
    Keep it simple and within the time limits. Try to enjoy it! Good luck
