Teaching the new mathematics A level

NCETM CPD Standard

The new mathematics A level specifications require all students to study aspects of pure mathematics, statistics, and mechanics in the new linear format. In addition, three overarching themes of mathematical argument and proof, problem solving, and mathematical modelling must be applied across the whole A level content. New material is included at both AS and A level. This course will explore approaches to teaching that strengthen the overarching themes, and aspects of the new content will be considered in detail.
Topics covered are problem solving, use of technology, understanding mechanics, mathematical argument and proof, large data sets, modelling using technology, distributions: Normal and Binomial.
The traditional division of mathematics into separate teaching areas will also be discussed, together with the implications that the common content has for developing integrated schemes of learning.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.

Head of Mathematics / Mathematics Coordinators, Lecturer, Teacher
