Supporting students studying Core Maths

The AMSP aims to increase the number of students studying level 3 Core Maths and provides support for teachers and students of Core Maths in a range of ways:

  • supporting students, through freely available resources on the Core Maths Platform
  • supporting teachers with an extensive professional development offer;
  • providing advice and local support through the national network of Area Coordinators.

The Core Maths Platform

What is it?

The Core Maths platform is a comprehensive collection of online learning resources developed to support the teaching of Core Maths.

The resources are organised into six courses for different Core Maths qualifications:

  • AQA Level 3 Certificate Mathematical Studies 2A
  • AQA Level 3 Certificate Mathematical Studies 2B
  • AQA Level 3 Certificate Mathematical Studies 2C
  • Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Certificate in Mathematics in Context
  • OCR Level 3 Certificate in Core Maths A (MEI)
  • OCR Level 3 Certificate in Core Maths B (MEI)

A guide detailing which of the resources are suitable for the NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Mathematics for Everyday Life qualification has been produced.

How can the Core Maths Platform support learning recovery?

  • Underpinning concepts from GCSE are revisited and applied to realistic contexts.
  • Interactive study packages allow students to work through concepts at their own pace.
  • Automatically marked section tests allow teachers to track students’ progress.
