Developing Core Maths Pedagogy

  • by

Do you want to make real, sustainable changes in your Core Maths Classroom?

Do you want to share, swap, steal and borrow excellent resources and teaching tips from like-minded colleagues?

Do you want high quality CPD that you can actually put into practice?

We’ll meet several times during the year with the aim of forming a genuine community of Core Maths teachers. 
We’ll concentrate on improving our Core Maths pedagogy, including looking at contextualised problem solving and links to teaching in other areas. We’ll share our best resources, make new ones, and discuss best approaches when teaching different themes and topics.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

What is involved?

This Work Group will be designed to meet the specific needs of the participants. The sessions will be a blended mix of face-to-face and online meetings with three days of direct Work Group workshop time.

Schools/colleges must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme. This involves a total of three days of face-to-face (or equivalent) support across the academic year, as well as classroom and school-based activity.

Participants must also be supported by their school/college leadership to explore outcomes from the project with other colleagues in their department

Who can apply?

This programme is aimed at teachers of Core Maths in post-16 settings.

What is the cost?

This programme is fully funded by NW1 Maths Hub and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
