This meeting will focus on extending the range and depth of mathematics taught within the curriculum and consider the potential impact on students’ grades by extending our curriculum.

We will consider the other mathematical qualifications, in particular AS and A Level Further Mathematics.  We will also consider University admissions test questions and how these can be incorporated into the A Level Mathematics curriculum to help broaden the curriculum within the time allocated for teaching.

Finally, we will consider ways in which we can encourage more students to consider choosing Maths and Further Maths A Levels and how to support them.


  • To consider ways of extending the curriculum
  • To discuss ways to include TMUA and MAT questions into the A Level curriculum
  • To consider possible strategies to support students, especially students aiming for Bs or Cs

Many students find the transition from GCSE to A level can undermine their confidence in themselves and result in an anxiety which traps them in a place where they cannot grow or develop as well as they should.

Dr. Mark Hodds from Coventry University has researched into Mathematics anxiety and has practical ideas on how to build resilience in students through self-explanation training, giving them more confidence to move outside their comfort zone and to tackle complex examination questions.

This half-day workshop will support you to build resilience in your A level Mathematics students, offering practical strategies and resources to take back to your classroom.
