Imperial mA*ths project teacher supportOnline Self-paced study
In each unit of this online course, teachers will see pages titled:
- Spotlight on...
- A challenging task
- Unpicking a question (from Imperial’s accompanying student online course).
Each page includes a short video and some prompts for reflection. Participating teachers are required to interact and collaborate with each other and the course tutors via the online forums.
The course offers total flexibility: teachers can access the materials, day or night, over a period of up to one year. Teachers will be able to track their progress within the course and see when they have completed a section, a pod or the full course. The course is being made freely available for state-funded schools and colleges through the AMSP.
Both the student and teacher courses focus mainly on AS Mathematics. Imperial has recently launched its Year 13 student course and this will be followed in summer 2020 by MEI’s online teacher professional development for Year 13 content.
- To support teachers of high attaining A level Mathematics students through providing and demonstrating practical resources and approaches, adaptable across a range of A level topics.
- To explore, in depth, aspects of mathematics content and pedagogy.
- To create a forum through which teachers can analyse all aspects of the course content with other teachers and course tutors.
Who will benefit from attending?
Teachers with one or more high attaining A level Mathematics students.
|Section||Approximate time to complete*|
|Unit 1: Introduction||Up to 1 hour|
|Unit 2: Number and algebra||Up to 4 hours|
|Unit 3: Coordinate geometry||Up to 1 hour|
|Mid course review||Up to 1 hour|
|Unit 4: Mechanics||Up to 2 hours|
|Unit 5: Statistics||Up to 3 hours|
*Timings are approximate and suggest the required time for a topic to be counted on a certificate of participation. Further resources are linked from each section and so participants may, if they wish, spend more time than this in consolidating and reflecting on the content. You do not need to complete all sections to request a certificate.
