11-16 maths resources

Teaching and learning resources

The resources on these pages have been developed by the AMSP and the 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!

Extension resources

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 AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics

Resources to support the teaching and learning of this qualification are available on Integral®. Teacher access is available for free to schools that register with the AMSP.

Resources for the OCR Level 3 FSMQ in Additional Mathematics

Resources to support the teaching and learning of this qualification are available within Integral®Opens a new window. 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 websiteOpens a new window.
