North West Surrey Teacher Network

Doing maths "live"... problem solving in a STEM interview


The North West Surrey Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of Maths in the Chertsey and Woking area of Surrey to meet, collaborate and share best practice. Meetings will take place termly and the programme is planned by teacher request. The meetings will be a mixture of informal sessions and training events.


  • AMSP and Network updates
  • What makes an interview different?
  • Discussion of sample questions
  • Useful resources


In this network meeting, we will discuss the preparation students need to solve mathematical problems in interviews. In particular, we will compare interview skills with other problem solving challenges, such as admissions tests. We will also solve some interview questions!
