Network Meeting for Further Mathematics.
Let Maths take you Further…
The Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) follows on from the Further Mathematics Network (FMN)
It is managed by the same team of people at MEI who set up and ran the FMN and who are working in partnership with the NCETM
Proportion of state-funded institutions offering A level Mathematics that also offer Further Mathematics
The FMSP has three strands:
Student Support - helping to provide access to Further Mathematics tuition for all students;
Teachers' Professional Development - enabling more teachers to teach Further Mathematics and level 3 mathematics within diplomas;
Communications and Marketing - promoting mathematics and raising awareness of the benefits of studying mathematics beyond GCSE.
Our role is to promote and support the teaching and learning of FM and level 3 mathematics within diplomas by
Helping schools and colleges to teach them ‘in-house’
Facilitating consortium working between neighbouring schools and colleges
Arranging external tuition for FM when tuition cannot be arranged by other means
The NCETM is partnering the FMSP to support the FMSP’s CPD strand
Promoting and supporting one another’s work, locally and nationally
Development of the NCETM portal to support FM and level 3 mathematics within diplomas
Funding networks and teacher enquiry projects focused on further mathematics
The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics aims to support and encourage mathematics-specific continuing professional development, for all teachers of mathematics across all phases.
