Probing questions for maths

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by Lgregson, Feb 5, 2012.

  1. Can anyone help? I found towards the end of last year some fantastic powerpoints with probing questions at http://www.bristol-cyps.org.uk/teaching/secondary/maths/apa-level4.html
    This seems to have been removed from the www.bristol-cyps.org.uk site and I can't find them in such a good format anywhere. I am trying to support colleagues in planning for key questions and would love it if anyone had a copy, knew where they have moved to or has a similar resource they could suggest. We teach KS3 and KS4 on the OCR spec if that makes a difference.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Are you thinking of something like the probing questions on the Kangaroo Maths site?
    I included a link to their levelopaedias on this page.
  3. Hi
    I have the powerpoint with probing questions but I don't know if they are the ones you are looking for. I will email that you, please send me your email.
  4. Hi

  5. Ask the mods to remove this post and do the email thingy via Private Messaging. Otherwise, you'llbe inundated with spam.
    I find that there's only one decent probing question: Why? Plus variants on it. It covers any situation, really.
    cyolba, why am I doing this again? :)
  6. P.S. Have you got married, kat?
    cyolba, looking too intently into usernames and email addresses :)
