11-16 maths resources
Teaching and learning resources
The resources on these pages have been developed by the AMSP and the legacy Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) for your students to use to deepen understanding and enrich their mathematical diet. We have linked them to different areas of the curriculum to make it easier to identify the topics on which the activity is based. Activities can be used to introduce topics, to consolidate knowledge, to develop skills or as an extension once a topic has been completed. They vary in the level of difficulty so there should be something there for all of your students!
In addition to working towards these two 11-16 extension qualifications, the resources are also suitable for helping Year 11 students prepare for AS/A level Mathematics:
Resources for the Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics
Resources to support the teaching and learning of this qualification are available on Integral®. Teacher and student access (via shared accounts) is currently available for free to schools that register with the AMSP, as part of MEI’s package of support for school/college closures. If you take out a subscription to these resources, you will also be able to use the online tests and student management features.
Resources for the OCR FSMQ in Additional Mathematics
Resources to support the teaching and learning of this qualification are available within Integral®. Teacher and student access (via shared accounts) is currently available for free to schools that register with the AMSP, as part of MEI’s package of support for school/college closures.
In addition, thanks to sponsorship from OCR, subscriptions for these resources allowing individual student access and opening up the possibility of tracking progress via online tests are currently free of charge to OCR centres. Further details of this free subscription, together with an application form, are available on the MEI website.
Where's the maths in that?
These resources are designed to demonstrate to students that maths can be found all around them. They are very easy to use, simply display a photograph and ask “Where is the maths in that?”Go to resource
Maths Club Activities
These resources are designed to support the many Maths Clubs that schools run across the country. Each activity is fully resourced and accessible to all 11-16 students at different levels. They should take around 30 minutes to work through, with extension activities to develop the ideas further according to the students’ engagement and interest.Go to resource
Visualising the Climate Crisis
These resources are designed to raise awareness of the impact of fast fashion on the climate. There are four different versions of the resource, each aimed at a different age range. They come with a presentation, teacher notes and a worksheet.Go to resource
This resource is designed for 11-16 students and focuses on the gender pay gap. It also delves into why students should study maths after GCSE and details the post-16 maths options that are available to them, specifically focusing on Core Maths.Go to resource
Practice and competition materials produced for the Maths Feast enrichment competition for Year 10 studentsGo to resource
A set of six postcards and six posters are available to help you to promote Core Maths to your students, and feature problems your students can attempt. If you would like to receive printed copies of these items, please send a request to [email protected].
We've developed a 30 minute presentation for students and parents/carers about the importance of studying maths post-GCSE. It outlines the options available, and provides compelling reasons for choosing to take an advanced maths qualification.
