Core Maths Teacher Network

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 Maths Hub and Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP) work collaboratively to deliver projects in this area.

Feedback from participants:

‚Äč“Interesting discussion on how teaching CM is different from A Level teaching:

  • More flexible SOW - not as pressured

  • Adapt teaching to current news stories, topics of interest etc

  • Students need more general knowledge

  • More links to other subjects eg data, finance etc

  • Different approach - more focus on context which suits some more than others

  • We know the students will use the skills and knowledge later in life - great!”

“It has been so useful hearing other teacher's ideas and made me teach more creatively. It also made me confident that I had covered everything.”

“Discussing teaching strategies was very helpful and sharing resources as well. It gave me many ideas that I can try in class or online.”

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.
