Students learn how to construct a mathematical proof using algebraic notation and geometrical reasoning. This higher GCSE topic take place in Term 3 Year 11. Before learning about proof students should be able to manipulate algebraic expressions.
Mathematical proof is often the hardest topic to learn at GCSE as it requires students to form fluent and reasoned mathematical arguments using concise algebraic notation.
