Black History Month 2020

Our Aims

The AMSP aims to increase participation in Core Maths, AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, and improve the teaching of these level 3 maths qualifications.

The programme prioritises support for state-funded schools and colleges in areas of low social mobility so that all students – whatever their ethnicity, gender or background – can have access to high quality teaching and choose their best post-16 maths pathway.

The resources, links and events below have been gathered together to support maths teachers as they plan learning opportunities for Black History Month.

In previous years, October has been one of the few times of the year when there is a focus on the achievements of black people in Britain. The events of 2020 suggest that this is not enough – black history cannot just be covered in one month of the year. However, Black History Month 2020 can be a time for schools and college communities to come together and to learn lessons from the past for the present and the future.
