Our neighbouring Maths Hubs have great Post-16 Work Groups on offer including:
Developing Core Maths Pedagogy
Develop improved teaching approaches for Core Maths
What is involved?
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 to share these with departmental colleagues. Participants will design and trial classroom activities, sharing and reflecting on their experiences with others in the Work Group.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
What will you learn?
Your students will have raised awareness of the use of maths and statistics in everyday life
You will teach mathematical concepts and processes effectively through contextualised problem-solving
You will understand the philosophy of Core Maths
You will support your school/ college in developing clear ways of communicating and promoting its Core Maths offer
Who can take part?
Participants should be experienced 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 department.
