Developing Core Maths Pedagogy Work Group

These Work Groups give teachers opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and to share these with departmental colleagues. 

The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) 


What is involved?

Participants will have the opportunity to guide the work of the group alongside exploring the following:
  • 2022 exam analysis and examiners report
  • how to encourage mathematical discussion
  • how Core Maths supports other subjects
  • collaborative planning
  • shared resources
  • preliminary material and exam preparation



  • Your students will have raised awareness of the use of maths and statistics in everyday life
  • You will teach mathematical concepts and processes effectively through contextualised problem-solving
  • You will understand the philosophy of Core Maths
  • You will support your school/ college in developing clear ways of communicating and promoting its Core Maths offer


Who can apply?

Participants should be experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths from schools and colleges in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths. Where appropriate, participants will be expected to work with colleagues in their own department.


What is the Cost?

The Developing Core Maths Pedagogy project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
