Developing A Level Pedagogy
Develop improved teaching approaches for A level Mathematics.
Who can take part?
Participants should be existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Mathematics who wish to lead the development of pedagogy with other colleagues in their own or other schools.
This project would be particularly useful to those who may have already completed other (AMSP) A level courses such as Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) or Preparing to Teach A level Mathematics.
What is involved?
These Work Groups support experienced A level teachers to not only further develop their expertise but provide a model to support departmental change. The content of individual Work Groups will be flexible to meet the needs of participants, but will be broadly linked to the Overarching Themes of the A level qualification: problem solving and mathematical thinking; mathematical modelling and representations; proof, reasoning and mathematical communication.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
- Your students will have a deeper conceptual understanding of the A level Maths content
- You will understand the purpose of the Overarching Themes, including use of technology, and their impact on teaching and learning in A level Maths
- You and your department will be equipped to better support the development of stronger subject knowledge pedagogy
- You and your department will further embed the Overarching Themes into your A level
What is the cost?
The Developing A Level Pedagogy project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
*The London Central and West Maths Hub reserves the right to charge a £75 fee for non-attendance to the sessions or for cancellations to any of the sessions with less than 1 weeks’ notice.**
