Developing Core Maths Pedagogy 2022-23

Develop improved teaching approaches for Core Maths.

This Work Group give teachers opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and to share these with departmental colleagues. Work Groups may be face-to-face or online and will include school-based activities between workshops.The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Developing A Level Pedagogy 2022-23

Develop improved teaching approaches for A level Mathematics:

These Work Groups support experienced A level teachers to not only further develop their expertise but provide a model to support departmental change. The content of individual Work Groups will be flexible to meet the needs of participants, but will be broadly linked to the Overarching Themes of the A level qualification.

This project would be particularly useful to those who may have already completed other (AMSP) A level courses such as Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM).

The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Supporting Post 16 GCSE Resits

Principal focus for 2022/23: Post-16 GCSE resit pedagogy to support Covid recovery

Work Groups will explore ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students, and of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE in the context of Covid recovery.

Participants will collaborate and experiment, deepening their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of, and pedagogical approaches to, GCSE Maths. Participants’ departments will also benefit through shared good practice, making more confident use of approaches such as bar modelling, multiplicative reasoning, realistic contextualisation or teaching for mastery.

Who can take part?

This project is for teachers of post-16 GCSE Maths resit and/or any head of department where post-16 GCSE Maths resit is taught. Participants may be based in FE colleges, sixth form colleges, schools with post-16 provision or other post-16 settings.
