New Maths Hub in the South West: Mobius
Thursday 12th November 2020
The AMSP continues to partner with the NCETM and Maths Hubs to support maths education from early years through to university. The AMSP Area Coordinators meet regularly with the Maths Hub Level 3 leads to ensure that a thorough and well thought-out support package is available to schools and colleges to support their development of Level 3 maths.
The Maths Hub Level 3 Work Groups provide opportunities for a group of teachers to work in a sustained manner across the year to develop a particular pedagogical focus. The AMSP runs regular network meetings which can be tailored to whatever Level 3 needs are requested by the teachers involved; examples span from university entrance tests to how to recruit for next year’s Year 12 cohort.
To engage with your local network, please contact your local Area Coordinator. If there is a specific topic that you want advice or support on, then they can ensure that it is covered. They can also provide guidance towards appropriate Maths Hub Work Groups.
The South West region’s four existing Maths Hubs (Boolean, CODE, GLOW, and Jurassic) are being joined by a fifth hub: the Mobius Maths Hub. This new Hub covers the areas of Wiltshire, Swindon, West Berkshire, Reading, Wokingham, and Bracknell Forest. The Maths Hub lead is Aysha Stone and the Level 3 lead is Emma James; I know they would be delighted to hear from schools in their region.
