Work Group Outline
This Work Group will give Core Maths teachers opportunities – through collaboration and experimentation – to develop improved teaching approaches that embrace the unique pedagogy for teaching Core Maths and support the open-ended, contextual and problem-solving skills Core Maths students need.
A particular focus this year as suggested by last year’s participants (some continuing), is developing the pedagogy for teaching Core Maths to enhance schemes of work by planning sequences of lessons including selecting a range of appropriate resources for chosen topics.
This project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
What is involved?
The work group will run over six part-day/twilight sessions, which will be a mix of face-to-face and online meetings. The first session (20th November) is online and the subsequent session dates will be agreed at the first session. Lead participants will be expected, where appropriate, to work with colleagues in their own department.
The Work Group will be designed to meet the specific needs of the range of experience of participants.
Who can apply?
This project is aimed at experienced, recent or – in exceptional cases – potential teachers of Core Maths. These may be teachers in post-16 settings whose main subject is maths or whose main subject is not maths.
What is the cost?
The Developing Core Maths Pedagogy project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
