Aims

  • understand the purpose of the over-arching themes and their impact on teaching and learning in A Level Mathematics, including use of technology
  • be confident to teach aspects of the content (particularly mechanics and statistics)
  • apply related pedagogical approaches in their A level teaching to support Covid recovery
  • support colleagues in their own school/college in embedding themes from the Work Group in their delivery of A level teaching to support Covid recovery
  • become a part of a developing community of practice

Who will benefit from attending?

It is suitable for existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Mathematics who wish to lead the development of pedagogy in A level teaching with other colleagues in their own or other schools.

Teachers will find this Work Group particularly useful if they have previously completed AS/A level Mathematics professional development, and want to influence their department's approach to teaching A level in the future.
