Mechanics for Further Maths PD Day



This course will cover the Mechanics content of A level Further Mathematics including looking at Centres of Mass, Work Energy and Power, Momentum and Collisions and Horizontal Circular motion. 


  • To provide teachers with an opportunity to improve or refresh their subject knowledge of the main topics which typically feature in A level Further Mechanics
  • To provide opportunities to interact with the course tutors and other delegates in a small group to discuss subject content, resources and teaching ideas.
  • To allow teachers to problem solve within the content of Further Maths Mechanics

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers who are confident in teaching AS and A level Mechanics and may be teaching the Further Maths Mechanics options in the future. Teachers who are currently teaching the A level Mechanics options for Further Maths. Teachers attending should be confident in using the content in AS and A level Maths.
