Developing Pedagogy in A Level Maths
In 2019/20, this project will run in Maths Hubs across England and provide support for developing the quality of teaching in response to the demands of the linear specifications for A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Run in partnership with the Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP), Work Groups in this project aim to develop existing A level pedagogy and support development of the requirements of the linear A levels and understand the purpose of the overarching themes in departments. Participants will gain confidence in leadership in departments and in developing others in their department.
It is suitable for people leading development of maths teaching and learning in departments with A level provision and other experienced A level teachers. This could be heads of department or second in department, KS5 coordinators, programme managers or course leaders or other experienced teachers with a similar role. This project is not a subject knowledge development programme for teachers new to A level.
Through three face to face Work Group meeting days (or equivalent), participating leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers will develop their practice to effectively plan sequences of lessons which meet the requirements of the new A level, raise awareness in students of the links between mathematical topics within the new A level content, and support colleagues in their own schools/colleges in embedding themes from the course in their planning and delivery of new A level teaching.
