Making them think! (Buckinghamshire Teacher Network)

A level Pedagogy and Core Maths


Making them think! is a network for teachers in Buckinghamshire schools. It is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of Core Maths and of A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics to meet, collaborate and to share best practice.
