Background context • Role within institution: PGCE student
• Key features of student profile: eastlea community school. (pretoria road E16). The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of students’ transfer of skills from maths to science lessons. In maths lessons students understand the basic concept of rearranging formulae and how to draw and interpret graphs. When they are then asked to repeat the same skills in a science lesson they struggle to transfer these skills across.
The key skills that this particular project focused on were how to use scientific formulae to calculate an answer and then further calculate answers by rearranging each formula. Another major skill focus was on drawing and interpreting data from a graph. The chosen theme was around kinetic energy .
