Discrete maths features in all AS/A level Further Mathematics specifications, albeit under different titles:

  • Discrete Mathematics – AQA and OCR A
  • Decision Mathematics – Edexcel
  • Modelling with Algorithms – OCR B (MEI)

Teaching Discrete Mathematics (TD) is an extended professional development course for teachers wishing to build their confidence in teaching this content, and covers the discrete maths material common to multiple A level Further Mathematics specifications.

TD consists of:

  • Eleven live online tutorials
  • Two compulsory study days
  • Access to course-specific teaching and learning resources on Integral (MEI’s learning platform)
  • Email support from tutors and access to an online group forum

Towards the end of the course a short assignment is issued, for which support and guidance are provided. Course certificates will be available for those participants completing the assignment.

TD is a new streamlined course replacing the previous courses TD1 and TD2; it is therefore not suitable for teachers who have already completed these courses.

Key details

Curriculum focus:A level Further Mathematics
Mathematical focus:Discrete
Format:Sustained PD
Course length:11 session(s)
Fee:Free for state-funded schools; £495 otherwise

Who will benefit from attending?

TD is designed for A level Further Mathematics teachers who are new to teaching discrete/decision mathematics, or those that have previously taught these topics but wish to broaden and deepen their understanding. 

Our extended courses enable teachers to broaden and deepen their subject, pedagogical and pedagogical content knowledge. This makes teachers better equipped to make links between topics, address students’ misconceptions and confidently challenge learners at all attainment levels. Our course aims and intended outcomes are consistent with the principles set out in the Education Inspection Framework.
