Increasing Participation in Post 16 Mathematics

Increasing Participation in Post 16 Mathematics

25 February 2016, 3.45-5pm  Langdale Centre, Langdale Gardens, Wallsend.

After our successful 'Maths Moves' event in November, the Great North Maths Hub are looking for schools who are interested in creating a working group that will focus on improving post-16 participation.

The aims of the group will be:-
  • to share the good practice already used in your retrospective schools to promote post 16 participation and the impact this has had;
  • discuss possible further actions that the group could lead on
  • trial these actions.
Possible actions the group could explore are:-
  • The use of bridging units for students who have chosen Mathematics
  • Taster sessions held in school aimed at current Y11
  • Materials for 'market stalls' in open evenings
  • Finding out current Year 10 intentions
If you are interested in finding out more, or are willing to join our working group please click here to register to attend the launch meeting on 25 February 2016.
