Maths Hub Work Group: Developing Core Maths Pedagogy

Organised by Enigma Maths Hub

Overview

Maths Hub Work Groups are now recruiting for 2021/2022. For further information please contact your local Maths Hub.

Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.

Developing Core Maths Pedagogy Work Groups are for experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths who are in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths. The Work Group focusses on collaborative discussion, planning, trialling ideas between sessions and evaluation.

Primary focus for 21/22: Core Maths pedagogy to support Covid recovery

These Work Groups give teachers opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and to share these with departmental colleagues. Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas.

Aims

  • These Work Groups give participants opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and share these with departmental colleagues.
  • Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas.
  • Students in participant schools and colleges will take and succeed at Core Maths in increasing numbers.

Who will benefit from attending?

This Work Group is for experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths who are in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths. These may be teachers in post-16 settings whose main subject is maths or whose main subject is not maths. Participants will be expected, where appropriate, to work with colleagues in their own department.
