We’re excited to be running a series of free online sessions for teachers of Biology, Geography and Psychology at A level. The sessions aim to develop your confidence in teaching the mathematical elements of your A level subject, and provide a valuable opportunity to network with others teaching the same subject as you. If you’re a teacher of maths, we’d be grateful if you’d share the details below with your colleagues in relevant departments.
We’re running three separate courses:
Maths for teachers of A level Biology
- Begins on Tuesday 30 November 2021.
- Sessions include Statistical testing with a focus on t-tests and Standard deviation and measuring spread.
- Running in partnership with the Association for Science Education as part of the ‘Mathematics for Biology Teachers’ (MfBT) project, with support from the Department for Education.
Maths for teachers of A level Geography
- Begins on Tuesday 7 December 2021.
- Sessions include Analysing, contextualising and processing geographical data and Truth or lies – working with big data sets.
- Running in conjunction with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) as part of the Geography and Core Maths Initiative.
Maths for teachers of A level Psychology
- Begins on Tuesday 1 February 2022.
- Sessions include Probability, significance and hypothesis testing introduction and Correlation.
- Running in partnership with the Association for the Teaching of Psychology as part of the ‘Maths in Psychology’ project, with support from the Department for Education.
All three courses include a joint session where we’ll show how you can make the most of the free software, Desmos, in your classroom. We’ll also cover the links between the Level 3 Core Maths course and other A level subjects.
These courses are free to attend. Due to the way the AMSP is funded, priority will be given to teachers from state-funded schools and colleges in England, and trainee Biology, Geography and Psychology teachers. Teachers from other institutions are very welcome to apply and will be accepted if we have capacity.
