Use of Technology

MEI's position on the use of technology

MEI believes that technology should be embedded within the teaching, learning and assessment of mathematics. It aids understanding and enables problems to be addressed that would be impractical or inefficient to tackle without it.

Use of technology in the new A level Mathematics (from 2017)

The subject guidance for A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics (first teaching September 2017) states:

“The use of technology, in particular mathematical and statistical graphing tools and spreadsheets, must permeate the study of AS and A level mathematics.”

We have produced guidance on integrating technology into your scheme of work
and we will be providing further resources and support for teachers to help them implement this.

CPD in the use of technology in mathematics

CPD is available in the use of technology in mathematics. If you would like this to be delivered at your school/college or other appropriate venue, please contact MEI’s Learning Technologies Specialist to organise a convenient date.
