Overview

Exeter Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet termly and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions.

Content

Many students find making the transition from GCSE mathematics into the A level mathematics course to be a challenging one, others take it in their stride and for some studying A level mathematics is an epiphany that transforms their life. How best to manage this transition so that your A level classes are thriving, inquisitive and comfortable places in which to learn maths is one of the challenges that every department offering the course grapples with.

The aim of this network meeting is to offer teachers a chance to consider how best to manage this transition, hear from others about what has (and, perhaps, hasn’t) worked well, as well as to have an opportunity to explore some of the materials and support on offer from the AMSP.
