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. The STMC is organised by the AMSP in partnership with UK Mathematics Trust.
Regional STMC events usually take place in November and early December, with a national final held in London early the following February. Due to restrictions on face-to-face events we were unable to run the STMC in 2020. Schools and colleges wishing to use the planned competition materials for their own internal enrichment can now download them via our STMC resource archive, which is available here.
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 Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) and are available within the FMSP resources archive.
Materials from past STMCs are also a good source of enrichment.
