AQA Level 2 Further Maths - An Overview

Online

Overview

This session will introduce participants to the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course by addressing the following questions:

  • What is the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course?
  • Why should your students be offered the course?
  • How could it be delivered?
  • How does the new specification differ from the previous one?
  • How much crossover is there with GCSE Mathematics?

In addition, we will explore the free resources available on Integral through your AMSP registration to support the teaching and assessment of the course.

 

Aims

  • To help make teachers, subject leaders and senior leaders aware of the benefits of running AQA Level 2 Further Maths.
  • To explore alternative delivery methods of the course.
  • To familiarise teachers and subject leaders with the topics in the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course which go beyond the GCSE curriculum.

Who will benefit from attending?

  • Do you know why you should be delivering this course to your students?
  • Are you planning to start delivering the course soon?
  • Did you teach the previous specification and want to update yourself on the changes in the new specification?

This session is aimed at both subject leaders and senior leaders who would like to know more about the benefits of teaching AQA Level 2 Further Maths and models for effective delivery of the course, and is also aimed at teachers who are new to the course to get a feel for what additional knowledge is required teaching beyond the GCSE Mathematics curriculum.
