West Kent Teacher Network

Addressing the Overarching Themes of the A Level Maths Qualification

Overview

The West Kent Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet 4 times per year and the programme is a mixture of informal sessions and speaker-led training events

Agenda

  • Wed 5th Feb 2020 - The Overarching Themes for A level Maths (1): Mathematical modelling. Plus sharing resources and activities for revision and deepening understanding
  • Wed 18th March 2020 - The Overarching Themes for A level Maths (2): Mathematical argument language and proof. Plus sharing resources and activities for revision and deepening understanding
  • Wed 24th June 2020 - The Overarching Themes for A level Maths (3): Mathematical Problem Solving. Plus sharing resources and activities for revision and deepening understanding

Content

All A level Maths specifications require 3 overarching themes to be applied, along with associated mathematical thinking and understanding, across the whole of the A level content. The overarching themes underpin the subject content of A level maths. 

The three overarching themes are:

  • Mathematical argument, language and proof
  • Mathematical problem solving
  • Mathematical modelling

This series of 3 Teacher Network meetings will explore approaches to teaching that strengthen coverage of the overarching themes.
