Overview

This work group is aimed at Teachers in KS1 and KS2, particularly teachers who have moved into a new Key Stage, practitioners who would benefit from refreshing their mathematics pedagogy and subject knowledge, or those with little maths specific training.

During this work group participants will:

  • Deepen and extend their own subject knowledge in mathematics;
  • Explore key structures of the primary mathematics curriculum and consider the implications for teaching and learning;
  • Understand children’s expected progression in the key structures of the primary mathematics curriculum;
  • Know a range of ways to support children to develop an understanding of the key structures of mathematics;
  • Reflect on their learning and undertake follow up work in school.

Overview

This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

What is involved?

There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways:

  • Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures
  • Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures.

Each pathway has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision. The intention is that each pathway is the equivalent of a four-day programme.

Overview

The purpose of this programme is to support teachers who are new to teaching Core Maths in developing specialist knowledge for teaching Core Maths and to increase their confidence in teaching the course.

The programme has a primary focus on Core Maths subject knowledge and pedagogy and will be based on these six key themes which are common to all the Core Maths specifications:

  • Using contextualised problem-solving
  • Applying Fermi estimation and modelling
  • Developing critical analysis
  • Making sense of finance
  • Using the pre-release materials
  • Exploring statistics.

Technology and online teaching will be underlying themes throughout the programme.

Overview

This project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to support Covid recovery, to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students, and the development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college. It aims to develop and sustain local communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Maths.

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

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

Overview

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. Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas.

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

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

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.

SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE FOR TEACHING MATHEMATICS – SECONDARY (NON-SPECIALISTS) 

Kickstart your journey with an intensive course starting in June, finishing in September.

This project is designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in a secondary school in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

Who can take part?

This programme is for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools who fit the following definition:

A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is ‘a teacher that is currently teaching some mathematics who has not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in mathematics’.

If there is sufficient space in the cohort, other teachers of maths who do not fit this definition but would benefit from this support may also participate.

What is involved?

The programme is aligned to the NCETM teaching for mastery pedagogy and is based on six key themes:

  1. Structure of the number system
  2. Operating on number
  3. Multiplicative reasoning
  4. Sequences and graphs
  5. Statistics and probability
  6. Geometry.

Participants will explore these themes, supported by an experienced secondary practitioner.

  • 6 blended sessions (one each half term) – whole days
  • Collaboration through the online Basecamp community
  • Try out aspects of the Work Group back in school and record your reflections
  • Contribute to the Maths Hub and NCETM final evaluation

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • explore and increase their use of a range of pedagogic approaches consistent with teaching
    for mastery
  • increase their confidence in planning for progression in maths
  • improve their subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths with a particular emphasis
    on mathematical structures in key areas.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Secondary Non-specialists project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

DATES FOR JUNE ARE:

  • Tuesday 21st June 10:00am – 4:00pm, ONLINE
  • Tuesday 28th June 09:30am – 3:30pm, FACE-to-FACE, venue TBC

What: A blend of collaborative group sessions, one-to-one support and resources to take a deeper look at multiplicative reasoning and the challenges facing early career mathematics teachers.

Each session will last 1 hour from 3:30 until 4:30 with time afterwards for those that would like bespoke discussions. There will be resources and further support available to participants to guide them through their first few years as a maths teacher.

The SKTM – Secondary Early Career Teachers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Overview

The support for transition into KS3 (Year 5 – 8 Continuity) Work Group aims to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogy.

Following the disruption to education caused by the Covid crisis, this transition is more crucial than ever. A key feature will be understanding how best to prioritise key aspects of the curriculum to help ensure pupils
have mastered the fundamental understanding and skills they need to underpin their progression through upper Key Stage 2 and into Key Stage 3 using the NCTEM Checkpoint materials.
