Developing A Level Pedagogy

Develop improved teaching approaches for A level Mathematics

Theme: Investigating how A-Level students are assessed in Pure Maths and how this could inform your practice.
This project explores and deepens participants' pedagogic content knowledge, empowering teachers to enhance their classroom practice and to influence department-wide A level teaching. It is an engine for improving student understanding of A level Maths, and driving their subsequent success. Participants will design and trial classroom activities, sharing and reflecting on their experiences with others in the Work Group.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
What will you learn?
  • Your students will have a deeper conceptual understanding of the A level Maths content
  • You will understand the purpose of the Overarching Themes, including use of technology, and their impact on teaching and learning in A level Maths
  • You and your department will have a better understanding of how ideas behind teaching for mastery can be used in the classroom
  • You and your department will have a deeper understanding of content pedagogic knowledge for A level Maths
Who can take part?
Participants will be established teachers of A level Maths who are looking to deepen their pedagogical understanding. They must be teaching a current A level Maths group. 
This Work Group would be particularly useful for those who may have already completed other A level subject knowledge and pedagogy CPD.
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 state-funded schools/colleges.
