AS Further Maths: Pure common topics

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 covers topics which are common to the AS Further Pure elements of specifications for AQA, Edexcel, MEI and OCR. Further topics to complete the content for each specification will be available soon via the On Demand Professional Development (ODPD) programme.

This course comprises nine 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 with an opportunity to improve or refresh their subject knowledge of the main topics which typically feature in AS Further Pure.
  • 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 Further Pure element of AS Further Mathematics and those who are seeking to refresh their approach in this context.

Content

  • Complex numbers
  • Matrices
  • Vector geometry
  • Roots & coefficients of polynomials
  • Series
  • Proof

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.
