Cambridge

Overview

A free one-day professional development and networking conference, dedicated to exploring interesting and stimulating ways of introducing Core Maths topics in the classroom. The conference will also share resources for the teaching of Core Maths, including our free online Core Maths platform.

We welcome first time or returning Core Maths Conference delegates. Thanks to the wide array of optional workshops on offer, there’s something for everyone, so please feel free to sign up regardless of your level of experience with Core Maths or your past attendance to AMSP Core Maths events.

Who will benefit from attending?

These conferences are suitable for any teacher who is currently teaching Core Maths or who expects to do so in the near future. The content will be relevant to all of the Core Maths specifications.

Eligibility

Priority will be given to teachers from state-funded schools and colleges.

Programme

Delegates will have the opportunity to select two optional workshops for the morning sessions and will also attend a session on resources and a keynote plenary.

Keynote Plenary – Rob Eastaway

Rob has written or co-written eleven books, some of which have appeared in several languages. The majority are about the maths of everyday life, but he has also written books on cricket, memory and creative thinking. He is Director of Maths Inspiration, a national programme of interactive lecture shows in theatres that has reached over 100,000 teenagers in the last ten years.

Optional workshops

Session TitleSession Description
Getting started with Core MathsThis is aimed at schools/colleges who are offering Core Maths for the first time in September 2019, or are planning to offer it in September 2020. The focus will be on strategies for how to plan and deliver Core Maths lessons, suggestions for promoting Core Maths, timetabling, support and professional development. There will also be time for asking any questions you may have about getting started with the course.
CorrelationThis session is aimed at those who are new to teaching Correlation. Correlation is in all the Core Maths specifications. This session will lead through a lesson on correlation and some ideas of how to teach it. We will also look at some examination questions from the different examination boards. You will need a laptop for this session.
Working with World DataThis session is open to all regardless of Core Maths experience. It is inspired by the work of Hans Rosling and The Royal Geographical Society and during it we will explore how we can incorporate world data into the teaching of Core Maths. You will need a laptop for this session.
Core Maths Project StyleAs Core Maths always looks at open-ended problem solving, this session will explore teaching the qualifications in 'project style', looking at various project ideas as well as the scaffolding and differentiation within the projects. Given Core Maths classes are often mixed ability, ranging from grade 4 to 7, 'project style' is a fantastic way to engage students of all levels.

Resources session

This session is an opportunity to explore the resources on our free online Core Maths Platform for students, which is due to be unveiled during the 2019/2020 academic year. For those with more Core Maths experience, there will also be an opportunity for you to share your favourite resources.

We recommend that you bring a laptop for this session, but we will also provide paper copies of the some of the resources too.
