Maths Hub Work Group: Developing Core Maths Pedagogy
Register your interest for 2022/2023 by contacting your local Maths Hub, participating hubs are listed below.
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: Core Maths pedagogy
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.
