Developing A Level Pedagogy

Who can take part?

Participants should be existing leaders of A level teaching who wish to develop their pedagogy, particularly in the delivery of the overarching themes of the A level course: proof, problem solving, modellingThe work group will also cater for experienced teachers of A level Mathematics who wish to lead the development of pedagogy with other colleagues in their own or other schools particularly in developing the delivery of the overarching themes. 

What is involved?

These Work Groups support experienced A level teachers to not only further develop their expertise but provide a model to support departmental change. The content of individual Work Groups will be flexible to meet the needs of participants, but will be broadly linked to the Overarching Themes of the A level qualification: problem solving and mathematical thinking; mathematical modelling and representations; proof, reasoning and mathematical communication.

The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Aims of the Work Group

Participants will:

  • further embed the overarching themesof A level Maths into their curriculum 
  • provide professional development within their department around subject content pedagogy for A level Maths
  • plan sequences of lessons which meet the requirements of the A level, including addressing the overarching themesof A level Maths
  • apply pedagogical approaches related to the theme of their Work Group in their A level teaching in a way that will also support colleagues in their own school/college.

What is the cost?

The Developing A Level Pedagogy project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
