This day has been designed to complement our other Core Maths professional development opportunities; all sessions are unique to the day.

This course is suitable for anyone who is already teaching Core Maths this academic year, for teachers who are interested in finding out more prior to teaching Core Maths or teachers of other Level 3 courses which have mathematical requirements.
State-funded schools, colleges and academies can apply to this course for free.

Breakdown of the day-
Session 1: Cross-curricula Core Maths.
One of the big advantages of Core Maths for students is the way in which it can support their other A Level subjects. So what maths do students need to do in their geography, psychology, biology, etc A Levels and how can Core Maths help.
Session 2: What do 2019 pre-release materials tell us?
A look back at last year's pre-release materials from all examination boards, what resources were developed to support student learning, and the related examination questions. This will give some insight into what can be expected in this year's examinations.
Session 3: 2020 pre-release collaboration.
An opportunity to work with other teachers in designing and creating materials for the classroom to support student understanding of the new pre-release materials. All developed resources will be shared with delegates.
