Maths Hub Work Group: Developing A level PedagogyPreston
Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. This poster shows how the post-16 professional development support offered by Maths Hubs and the AMSP complement each other. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.
Developing Pedagogy (in A level Mathematics) Work Groups aim to develop knowledge of content and the requirements of the new maths A levels and understand the purpose of the overarching themes. Participants will gain confidence in teaching new aspects of content (particularly mechanics and statistics) and explore the benefits of teaching statistics through the use of large data sets.
- know the requirements of the new A level Mathematics
- understand the purpose of the overarching themes
- be confident in teaching new aspects of pedagogy
- become a part of a developing community of practice
- improve the capacity of staff to teach A level Mathematics
- see students develop a more joined-up view of the subject and be better prepared for the new style of linear exams
Who will benefit from attending?
It is suitable for people leading development of maths teaching and learning in departments with A level provision and other experienced A level teachers.
Teachers will find this Work Group particularly useful if they have previously completed AS/A level Mathematics professional development, and want to influence their department's approach to teaching A level in the future.
State-funded schools, colleges and academies can participate in Work Groups for free.
