Schemes of Work

MEI has produced a scheme of work for the new A level starting in 2017. It comprises 43 units, each centred on one topic, with a commentary of the underlying mathematics, a sample resource, a use of technology, links with other topics, common errors, opportunities for proof and questions to promote mathematical thinking.

The content addresses the three overarching themes of the new A level :

  • Mathematical argument, language and proof
  • Mathematical problem solving
  • Mathematical modelling

This editable scheme of work is designed in the hope that in many schools and colleges mathematics colleagues will use it as a starting point to discuss the issues raised, and the units will provide a framework for their own scheme of work. The scheme of work is to be used for non-commercial purposes only; it should not be published in part or whole without permission from MEI.

Time allocations and teaching order are not included in the units, but some suggestions for timing and order of delivery are given in these schedules

An Excel version of the schedules is also available.

Amendments to the scheme of work

7 July 2017: To support teachers using the Hodder textbooks alongside this scheme of work, the numbers in the filenames in the zipped folders have all been increased by 1, to bring them in line with the Hodder textbook chapters. For example 00-problem-solving.pdf is now 01-problem-solving.pdf. The filenames elsewhere remain unchanged.

27 July 2017: Content statement P1 from the DfE document ‘Mathematics AS and A level content’ has been added to the Kinematics (AS) unit.
