Primary focus for 2021/22: Core Maths pedagogy to support Covid recovery 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. Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas. The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
What is involved? Work Groups will be either online or a blended mix of face-to-face and online meetings with three days (or equivalent) of direct Work Group workshop time. Work Groups will be designed to meet the specific needs of the lead participants.
Who can take part? Lead participants in these Work Groups will be experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths. These may be teachers in post-16 settings whose main subject is maths or whose main subject is not maths. This Work Group is for schools and colleges in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths. Lead participants will be expected, where appropriate, to work with colleagues in their own department.
Further details: This project will be a blended approach (mixture of online and face-to-face) but when sessions are face-to-face, the venue will be: Lampton School, Lampton Ave, Hounslow TW3 4EP.
Lunch will not be provided but you will have time to go to the local shops in Notting Hill or bring your own. **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’
