AS Maths: Pure Absolute Beginners

Online

Overview

Live Online Professional Development (LOPD) courses form a programme of innovative online courses, designed to enable teachers to develop their teaching with confidence in a convenient, stress-free way.

LOPD courses are delivered using a browser-based online classroom that allows participants to collaborate online in real time. The courses aim both to cover subject content common to all current specifications and to facilitate the exchange of teaching ideas. Rather than attending a one or two day course away from school or college, participants will use the internet to meet weekly online.

This course comprises 12 online sessions with an experienced tutor, each between 60 and 90 minutes in length and delivered in a small group of teachers allowing opportunities for interaction and discussion.

Aims

  • To provide teachers who have never offered AS or A level pure maths before with an opportunity to access expert tuition for the content along with ideas for delivering material in an active and engaging way.
  • To provide opportunities to interact with the course tutors and other delegates in a small group to discuss subject content, resources and teaching ideas.

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers who are new to offering the AS pure element of the A level Mathematics course and those who are seeking to refresh their approach in this context.

Content

  • Algebra

Materials and Equipment

You will need access to a good internet connection, using Chrome or Firefox as a browser. You will need a headset with a microphone to engage with the live sessions and most courses also require a means of sharing handwritten maths, such as a mini-whiteboard and webcam, a visualiser or a graphics tablet. Full details of how to set these up can be found on our online classroom support page

Other Information

The order of topics may be subject to change.

Our summer courses have been scheduled on the assumption that schools and colleges will not be reopening as normal until after the summer term. If this changes, we will assess affected courses immediately and let you know how we intend to proceed. Every effort will be made to continue to offer you the best experience of online professional development that we can throughout these unusual circumstances. Please do contact us at [email protected] if you have any concerns or if your attendance at a course will be affected by a return to the classroom.
