Post-16 Projects 2020/21

Supporting Core Maths

Lead: Mark Huyton

Overview

This Work Group is open to all levels of specialism and experience in Core Maths teaching. The ethos of the Core Maths Work Group is a collaborative platform for sharing best practice. Key areas of the curriculum are targeted through discussion and reflection. Pedagogical techniques and new resources are then developed to pro-actively improve our Core Maths provision. Our main outcome is to develop pedagogical techniques and novel resources through reflection and pre-empting student misconceptions for target topic areas. We will also aim to embed life skills in our Core Maths students, whilst also improving exam technique.

This Work Group is free to join.
