Developing A Level Pedagogy (including Use of Technology)

This Work Group provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students.

The Work Group aims to develop and sustain regional communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Mathematics.

The focus of this NCP is on developing pedagogy in A level Maths teaching and development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college. It involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

What are the intended outcomes of the Work Groups in this NCP?

Professional learning

Participants will:

  • know the content and requirements of the linear A -Level Mathematics
  • understand the purpose of the over-arching themes and their impact on teaching and learning in A Level Mathematics, including use of technology
  • be confident to teach aspects of the content (particularly mechanics and statistics)

Practice development

Participants will:

  • plan sequences of lessons which meet the requirements of the linear A Level, including addressing the overarching themes and use of technology
  • support colleagues in their own school / colleges in embedding themes from the Work Group in their delivery of the linear A Level

Whole school/departmental policies and approaches

Schools/colleges will

  • have improved the capacity of staff to deliver A Level Mathematics
  • departments will be better able to prepare lessons that meet the requirements of the linear A Level including the overarching themes and the use of technology

Student outcomes

Students will:

  • be able to demonstrate/communicate the links between mathematical topics within the linear A Level content
  • have increased confidence in the reasoning / proof, problem-solving, modelling and use of calculator elements of assessment

Who is it for?

The target group of schools/colleges/departments are those which want to develop one or more aspects of their A level pedagogy.
