This day has been designed to complement our other Core Maths professional development opportunities; all sessions are unique to the day.


  • To provide teachers with an opportunuity to explore resources and teaching approaches useful for contextualised problem solving.
  • To network with new and experienced teachers of Core Maths and, possibly, other subjects.
  • To consider how best to structure and deliver the course in your school for your students.

Study Schedule

Session 1: Cross-curricula Core Maths.

One of the big advantages of Core Maths for students is the way in which it can support their other A Level subjects. So what maths do students need to do in their geography, psychology, biology, etc A Levels and how can Core Maths help.

Session 2: What do 2019 pre-release materials tell us?

A look back at last year's pre-release materials from all examination boards, what resources were developed to support student learning, and the related examination questions. This will give some insite into what can be expected in this year's examinations.

Session 3: 2020 pre-release collaboration.

An opportunity to work with other teachers in designing and creating materials for the classroom to support student understanding of the new pre-release materials. All developed resources will be shared with delegates.
