Developing Core Maths Pedagogy

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.

(Inexperienced Core Maths Teachers should visit our SKTM Core Maths Offer: Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics Core Maths Teachers – Jurassic Maths Hub)

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

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.
