Level 3 Work Groups
Developing A Level Pedagogy Work GroupsThis project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students. Its aim is to develop and sustain regional communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers. The focus is on developing pedagogy in A level Maths teaching, and developing participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college. This project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). Please see this flyer for more information and register here.
Developing Core Maths Pedagogy Work Groups
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, and 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. This project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Supporting Post-16 GCSE Resit Work Groups
Work Groups in this project will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students, and working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE. Participants will, through collaboration and experimentation, deepen their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of GCSE Maths and their awareness of pedagogical approaches that best support students taking GCSE for the second time. Participants’ departments will, through shared good practice, become more effective at teaching GCSE resit, for example by wider and more confident use of teaching approaches such as bar modelling, multiplicative reasoning or realistic contextualisation. Work Group activity will also be influenced by understanding the unfolding support that will be required for transition to the post-16 environment with awarded grades rather than exam results.
