The AMSP aims to increase participation in Core Maths, AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, and improve the teaching of these level 3 maths qualifications.

The programme prioritises support for state-funded schools and colleges in areas of low social mobility so that all students – whatever their ethnicity, gender or background – can have access to high quality teaching and choose their best post-16 maths pathway.

Mathematics is a discipline which has developed over centuries and across all peoples and cultures.  Too often in our specification-driven teaching it is easy to miss the rich history behind some of the key ideas we use in school mathematics.

To celebrate Black History Month 2023 the AMSP have produced some new resources which give some insight into this global heritage. The resources are designed to be accessible to 11-16 students and come with a presentation, detailed teacher notes and a student handout.

Links to these resources are given below, together with links to Black History Month events, and some links to useful resources on other websites.
