NW Further Maths Pick and Mix PD - Further Topics in Statistics



  • To examine the key concepts in common core and selected options for A level Further Mathematics
  • To discuss a range of approaches to teaching Further Pure and Options effectively and in an engaging manner
  • To provide access to a wide variety of suitable resources
  • To explore ways of embedding Technology and the overarching themes of Problem Solving and Modelling into the curriculum

Who will benefit from attending?

This course should appeal to teachers who are relatively new to teaching A level Further Mathematics and would like to refresh their knowledge and to broaden their use of activities and teaching ideas.

Covering the content in a short session means that pace of the session could seem quite fast and so teachers who are completely unfamiliar with the content might consider booking onto the sustained Teaching Further Maths Course (https://amsp.org.uk/teachers/a-level-further/professional-development).


We'll be looking at some further topics from the probability and statistics options in A Level Further Maths taken from the following list:

- The geometric distribution;

- Continuous random variables and their probability density functions;

- The exponential distribution and its relationship to the Poisson distribution;

- Finding confidence intervals for the sample mean.

Whatever your exam board, you should find plenty of interest.


Open to teachers from state-funded schools and colleges in England and Wales. Priority will be given to teachers from the North West.
