Further Mechanics PD Day




The day will cover subject knowledge, common errors and will provide ideas for teaching and resources in four areas central to all the Mechanics units in the Further Maths specifications:

The focus of the day will be how to convey deep understanding of these concepts, through practical demonstrations and the consideration of probing questions. The content is aimed at teachers who are familiar with the Mechanics content of the Single Maths A Level.


  • To deepen subject knowledge of the four topics
  • To investigate strategies for teaching these areas, including practical work, modelling and problem solving
  • To share effective resources that can be used in the classroom

Who will benefit from attending?

New and experienced teachers of Mechanics modules for Further Maths specifications from all exam boards who are currently teaching the course or who may be teaching it in the future


  • Momentum and collisions 
  • Centre of mass
  • Work Energy and Power 
  • Horizontal circular motion

Materials and Equipment

Frequently Asked Questions

The school does not have any parking spaces - but there is normally easy parking nearby. Please email the event organiser for details.

You approach the school on foot from the High Road, directly to the left of the new football stadium. Lilywhite House (where the school is) is clearly marked on the building.

Google maps gives the impression that the school can be accessed from Northumberland Park which is not correct.

The first session begins at 10am. There will be refreshments provided from 9.30am, so aim to arrive then!
