All Maths Hubs in the North West are collaborating to offer the following projects for those providers of maths education in this phase.
Supporting Core Maths
This project provides support for departments offering Core Maths by enabling teachers to develop robust teaching approaches through collaboration and effective use of existing resources. The project is run in partnership with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
Embedding A level Technology
The new A level requires that the use of technology ‘permeates’ study of maths and statistics modules. Run in partnership with the Advanced Maths Support Programme, this project will explore practical approaches for integrating technology in the curriculum.
Participants will explore where, when and how to use technology to enhance students’ understanding, learning and experience, and will develop their own technology skills.
Developing A level teaching
This new project provides support for developing the quality of teaching in response to the demands of the new specifications for A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Run in partnership with the Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP), this project aims to develop knowledge of content and requirements of the new A Levels and understand the purpose of the overarching themes. Participants will gain confidence in teaching new aspects of content (particularly mechanics and statistics), and explore the benefits of teaching statistics through the use of large data sets.
