MEI CPD course

MEI CPD course

MEI is currently running a one-day CPD course entitled “Underground Mathematics: Resources to address the requirements of the new A level”. The course is available at various times and locations. You are encouraged to attend the Teacher Conference day after attending the MEI day.

The course focuses on using the Underground Mathematics resources to support the overarching themes in the new mathematics A level: proof, problem solving and modelling.

The course, including refreshments, lunch and resources, is free of charge to A level Mathematics teachers from state-funded schools and colleges.

Brilliant way to teach and engage students in maths. So many wonderful ideas to share with students in GCSE and post GCSE. [I] enjoy doing the questions myself, [as they] help with my own subject knowledge.
