Developing Core Maths Pedagogy

NEW DATES COMING SOON FOR 2020/21

These Work Groups give teachers opportunities – through collaboration and experimentation – to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need, and share these with departmental colleagues. Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas. This programme is run in conjunction with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Post-16 GCSE Resit and other learners struggling to learn maths Work Group

NEW DATES COMING SOON FOR 2020/21

This programme provides opportunities for participants to analyse and unpick the difficulties Foundation students encounter learning mathematics. We will look at how context and the strategies that students naturally bring to solve problems in context can help learners see connections in the GCSE curriculum and so reduce the burden on memorising procedures. This course is suitable for any teachers of Foundation GCSE, both pre and post 16.
