This year we have two Work Groups specific to Level 3 Mathematics, Developing Pedagogy (in A-level Maths) and Core Maths.

If you are interested in participating in the Embedding Technology Work Group please contact us as neighbouring Maths Hubs may be running the Work Group.

Supporting Core Maths

Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.

Supporting Core Maths Work Groups help aspiring, new or experienced Core Maths teachers develop their confidence in the subject. Participants will develop their understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths teaching through contextualised problem solving, and will appreciate the different Core Maths courses and be able to choose the one appropriate for their students.

The Work Group focusses on collaborative discussion, planning, trialling ideas between sessions and evaluation.

Embedding A level Technology

Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.

Embedding Technology in Level 3 Mathematics Teaching Work Groups will explore where, when and how to use technology to enhance students’ understanding. Participants will develop their own practice as a technology champion in their department.

Developing A level teaching

The aim of this Work Group is to develop knowledge of content and the requirements of the new maths 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.
