Maths Hub Work Group: Supporting Core MathsBirmingham
Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. This poster shows how the post-16 professional development support offered by Maths Hubs and the AMSP complement each other. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.
Supporting Core Maths Work Groups help aspiring, new or experienced Core Maths teachers develop their confidence in the subject. Participants will develop their understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths teaching through contextualised problem solving, and will appreciate the different Core Maths courses and be able to choose the one appropriate for their students.
The Work Group focusses on collaborative discussion, planning, trialling ideas between sessions and evaluation.
- Participants will understand the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving, appreciate the different Core Maths qualifications available, and be able to choose the course appropriate for their students
- Through collaboration and experimentation, participants will develop improved teaching approaches that fit the open-ended problem-solving skills students need to develop, and share these with departmental colleagues
- Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to other teaching
- Students in participant schools and colleges will take and succeed at Core Maths in increasing numbers
