Core Maths Workshop for 11-16 Schools

SHEFFIELD

Overview

Core Maths has been described by professor Paul Glaister of Reading University as the most significant development in post-16 maths education in a generation. With the number of centres offering Core Maths increasing year on year it is important that our year 11 students know that the course exists, where they can go to study it, what its intentions are and how it will go on to help them in their A levels, Higher Education courses and/or life beyond formal education. This event aims to inform teachers of mathematics in 11-16 schools of the ethos of the Core Maths course, why it is important that their students know about it when making their choices for post-16 study and will give real practical examples of Core Maths style problems that could be used in their teaching of GCSE mathematics.

Aims

  • Gain an awareness of the aims and ethos of the Core Maths course.
  • Understand the structure, options and content of the Core Maths course.
  • Provide practical examples of Core Maths style problems that could be used in lower school teaching.

Who will benefit from attending?

Although this event has been specifically designed to inform teachers of mathematics in 11-16 schools of Core Maths this event would be useful for any teacher of mathematics with a limited experience of the Core Maths course.  It will also be very useful to those 11-18 schools who dont currently offer Core Maths.
