Developing Core Maths Pedagogy

Develop improved teaching approaches for Core Maths.

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 to develop, and they 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) and is free to participating schools. 

There will be 6 half-day/twilight sessions across the first two terms of the academic year. This will be adapted to suit the needs of the group, and is likely to be a blended mix of face-to-face and online meetings. Sessions will take place during the Autumn (2022) and Spring (2023) terms with exact dates to be confirmed.

Participants should be experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths from schools and colleges in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths. Where appropriate, participants will be expected to work with colleagues in their own departments.
