Following a very successful first round of courses, the Further Mathematics Support Programme has launched a second national series of free, two day CPD events focusing on developing problem solving skills and providing extension and enrichment for Key Stage 4 students working towards the Higher Tier GCSE (or equivalent).
Teachers will have the chance to try out a range of materials targeted specifically at Higher Tier GCSE students, many of which have been developed by the FMSP. The resources aim to provide students and teachers with activities and tasks designed to consolidate understanding of some of the more challenging topics, to promote a deeper understanding of them and also to encourage students to recognise the links between and within topics. There are also opportunities to reflect on provision and pedagogy and to consider different ways in which individuals and groups can be appropriately challenged.
There is a small amount of funding to enable teachers to attend. Places on these courses are limited and filled quickly last time.
See the FMSP website for full details.
