Imperial mA*ths project teacher support

Online Self-paced study


This is an On Demand Professional Development course designed to prepare teachers to help their high-attaining students achieve an A* in A level Mathematics. The course is designed to complement Imperial College’s mA*ths programme, developed in partnership with MEI,  which gives A level Mathematics students access to tailored online support alongside face-to-face masterclasses and study days. You can find out more about the programme via Imperial's website.

In partnership with Imperial College London

In each unit of this online course, teachers will see pages titled: 

  • Spotlight on...
  • Differentiation
  • A challenging task
  • Unpicking a question (from Imperial’s accompanying student online course).

Each page includes a short video and some prompts for reflection. Participating teachers are required to interact and collaborate with each other and the course tutors via the online forums.

The course offers total flexibility: teachers can access the materials, day or night, over a period of up to one year. Teachers will be able to track their progress within the course and see when they have completed a section, a pod or the full course. The course is being made freely available for state-funded schools and colleges through the AMSP.

Both the student and teacher courses focus mainly on AS Mathematics. Imperial is due to launch its Year 13 student course later this year, and this will be followed in 2020 by MEI’s online teacher professional development for Year 13 content.


  • To support teachers of high attaining A level Mathematics students through providing and demonstrating practical resources and approaches, adaptable across a range of A level topics.
  • To explore, in depth, aspects of mathematics content and pedagogy.
  • To create a forum through which teachers can analyse all aspects of the course content with other teachers and course tutors.

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers with one or more high attaining A level Mathematics students.


  • Unit 1: Introduction
