This is an On Demand Professional Development course designed to prepare teachers to help their high-attaining students achieve an A* in A level Further Mathematics. The course is designed to complement Imperial College’s Further mA*ths programme, developed in partnership with MEI, which gives A level Further Mathematics students access to tailored online support alongside face-to-face masterclasses and study days. You can find out more about the programme via Imperial’s website.

The course is in two parts; the first focuses on AS Further Mathematics, the content usually studied in Year 12. and the second focuses on A level Further Mathematics content usually studied in Year 13. Teachers are invited to enrol on either or both of these courses. 

In each unit of this online course, teachers will see pages titled: 

  • Spotlight on…
  • Differentiation
  • A challenging task
  • Unpicking a question (from Imperial’s accompanying student online course).

Each page includes a short video and some prompts for reflection. Participating teachers are required to interact and collaborate with each other and the course tutors via the online forums.

The course offers total flexibility regarding when teachers can access the materials, day or night, over a period of up to one year. Teachers will be able to track their progress within the course and see when they have completed a section or the full pod.

What are the aims of this professional development?

  • To support teachers of high attaining A level Further Mathematics students through providing and demonstrating practical resources and approaches, adaptable across a range of A level topics.
  • To explore, in-depth, aspects of mathematics content and pedagogy.
  • To create a forum through which teachers can analyse all aspects of the course content with other teachers and course tutors.
