Inspiring your AS/A level Mathematics students
The AMSP offers some great ways to engage your students, and inspire them to continue to study maths and other mathematically rich subjects beyond AS/A level.
Course length 3 hours
The Senior Team Maths Challenge (STMC) provides enrichment and challenge to teams of senior students in the UK. The competition tests students in Years 11, 12 and 13 on their mathematical, communication and teamwork skills, with teams of four competing over several rounds to reach the final.
Regional STMC events usually take place in November and early December. However, due to restrictions on face-to-events the STMC will not operate in its usual format in 2020. We are currently in the process of developing an alternative structure for the competition, to allow students to participate within their own schools and colleges. Full information will be provided in late September.
We also offer a large programme of enrichment activities, including taster sessions for degree-level maths. These are available at locations throughout England. For details of all of our enrichment events, see our events listings.
In addition, we can arrange school visits to provide an enrichment experience for smaller groups of students. Contact your local AMSP Area Coordinator to discuss your needs.
You might also like to explore some problem-solving resources, which were produced by the legacy Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) and are available within the FMSP legacy resources archive.
Materials from past STMCs are also a good source of enrichment.
