Core Maths supporting other subjects


Studying Core Maths helps students to develop their quantitative and problem-solving skills, and improves their confidence with the mathematical content of other level 3 courses that they may be taking. In this session we will explore how to get the most out of Core Maths by working effectively with other subject areas.

Who will benefit from attending?

This event will be beneficial to all schools and colleges whether you offer Core Maths yet or not. It will help you establish, strengthen and grow the course within your institution.

This event will be most effective for your school/college if at least one member of the maths department attends along with a teacher from a different subject which has mathematical requirements. Level 3 Core Maths is particularly useful for students studying Biology, Geography and Psychology. It will also be useful for Heads of Sixth Form and members of SLT.

Please share this event with colleagues from other departments and encourage them to come along.


  • Get an overview of the maths content in other A levels and the crossover with Core Maths
  • Try out an activity on significance that can be used in maths, biology, geography or psychology lessons and discover where to find more resources
