Supporting Core Maths
This Work Group consists of direct partnership working between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). The success of Core Maths depends in part on the growth of the pool of teachers, schools and colleges with the necessary expertise, experience and enthusiasm to teach it. This project will contribute to the wider national effort to grow that pool and embed Core Maths confidence and culture within school and college maths departments.
- Participants will understand the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving, appreciate the different Core Maths qualifications available and be able to choose the course appropriate for their students.
- Through collaboration and experimentation, participants will develop improved teaching approaches that fit the open-ended problem-solving skills students need to develop and also share these with departmental colleagues.
- Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to other teaching.
Students in participant schools and colleges will take and succeed at Core Maths in increasing numbers.
