Support during school and college closures

Students

You can find resources to help you with home learning in the Students menu for this website.

Guidance for self-studying A level Mathematics

The AMSP has produced a couple of videos to support you in accessing resources to self-study A level Mathematics at home.

Guidance on accessing self-study resources from home.
Guidance on using Integral to self-study from home

We are currently developing further resources to support you and your teachers – see below for more details.

Teachers

You can find extensive resources to support the teaching and learning of maths in the Teachers menu. Below are details of additional resources we have been developing to help support the learning of maths during school and college closures. Many of these are now available and the remainder will follow soon.

The AMSP continues to develop further ways to support schools and colleges, students and teachers throughout this challenging time. Clearly the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on schools and colleges in academic year 2020/21 is uncertain and we will adapt what we do to meet these needs as circumstances change.

We are currently developing plans for a new package of support, guidance and information to help for teachers and students with the transition to advanced mathematics courses. This will be released in stages from late July through to the autumn term. Please help us to shape these plans by completing this online surveyOpens a new window. Your input to this process will help us better meet the needs of students and teachers in the autumn term and beyond.

Transition to A level Mathematics

Who is this support for?

Students who will study A level Mathematics starting in September 2020.

What is it?

There are two seperate activities being developed to support these students:

Transition to A level Mathematics resources: Essential Skills

A series of six weekly sets of resources, focused on consolidating essential skills from Higher Tier GCSE Mathematics to support students intending to study AS/A level Mathematics and/or Further Mathematics. Each resource will focus on an essential cross-topic skill such as simplifying, sketching and solving.

How do we access it?

You can access the resources and teacher notes by using the links below:

Transition to A level Mathematics course

An online course for Year 11 students. This focuses on techniques and concepts that are met at Higher Tier GCSE and further developed at A level. The aim is that by working through the course, students will become confident that they are ready to start A level Mathematics and will have thought about some of the key mathematical concepts that underpin A level Mathematics.

When will it be available?

Some topics are available now, and all topics will be available by the end of the summer.

How do we access it?

Students can access this course for free by signing up hereOpens a new window.

Teachers in AMSP-registered schools can access the course using your school’s shared Integral account. If your school is not registered with the AMSP yet, you can register now for free on the AMSP website.

Core Maths Skills

Who is this support for?

Year 11 students who are predicted a good pass or better in GCSE Mathematics, and are intending to study non-maths A level subjects such as Biology, Psychology, Geography, Business; level 3 vocational courses; and/or level 3 Core Maths.

What is it?

An online course, designed to help students revise the maths skills they will need for their level 3 studies. The course includes full solutions to all questions and automatically marked online tests.

These topics are available now:

  • Estimation and accuracy
  • Interpreting graphs and charts (statistics for life)
  • Measures and standard form
  • Percentages 1
  • Percentages 2
  • Probability
  • Proportional reasoning
  • Data tables, averages and spread.

Teachers in AMSP-registered schools can access the course using your school’s shared Integral account. If your school is not registered with the AMSP yet, you can register now for free on the AMSP website.

Self-study resources for Year 12 and 13

Who is this support for?

Year 12 and Year 13 students who are studying A level Mathematics.

What is it?

We have extended AMSP registration access to IntegralOpens a new window and it now includes free access to all AS and A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics resources.

Excluding online tests and student management features, which are available only by subscription.

We envisage that students, with guidance from their teachers, may use this wide range of resources to self-study topics to help them complete, or consolidate, the first year A level course and perhaps introduce some selected second year topics.

We have produced video guides for students which are available at the top of this page, and a video guide for teachers is included below.

How do we access it?

The materials are already available on IntegralOpens a new window. If you are registered with the AMSP then you will have access to these online resources. If not, you can register here.

Integral for A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics

Who is this support for?

Schools and colleges in England.

What is it?

To further support schools and colleges in England during school closures, MEI is extending AMSP registration access to include all of Integral’s AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics resources, excluding the online tests and the student management features, which are only available by subscriptionOpens a new window.

AMSP registration is available to all schools and colleges in England and is free. If you are not sure whether your school or college has already registered, please contact the AMSP admin team.

This video shows how the extended free access to Integral can be used to support teaching and learning at home:

University transition

Who is this support for?

Year 13 students who have studied A level Mathematics and will be studying an undergraduate degree course in maths, engineering, physics or a related subject.

What is it?

A course for students, hosted on IntegralOpens a new window, that aims to consolidate essential A level Mathematics skills, introduce topics that students may experience at university, and suggest wider reading.

How do we access it?

This course is now available on IntegralOpens a new window. Students can access the course using the shared student account that you will have if you are registered with the AMSP. If your school is not registered with the AMSP yet, you can register now for free on the AMSP website. Please ensure your Year 13 students have the shared login details they will need to access the programme over the summer.

Year 10 enrichment

Who is this support for?

Year 10 students, but the resources are also suitable for other year groups.

What is it?

A series of ten enrichment activities to engage your students and maintain their interest in studying level 3 maths.

How do we access it?

These resources are available now.

Maths Club Activities

Who is this support for?

These resources are designed to support the many Maths Clubs that take place nationally, but can equally be used as extension activities and are accessible to 11-16 students at any level.

What is it?

Sets of fully-resourced activities, designed to develop ideas further and promote student engagement and interest.

When will it be available?

There are currently nine sets of activities available, with more coming soon.

Feedback from teachers suggests we are on the right track.

"Can I just thank you once again for your amazing support that you provide for us Maths teachers and to our students. This morning, with the help of your brilliant videos on Further Mathematics, I managed to teach my students Further Statistics 1."

However, if you have any suggestions for further ways we could help please get in touch.
