Teaching Advanced Maths (TAM)
The Teaching Advanced Mathematics (TAM) course has been designed to support teachers of GCSE mathematics who wish to teach A level mathematics for the first time. Many teachers with A level teaching experience have enrolled on the course, often on the recommendation of colleagues who have completed TAM, to deepen their subject knowledge and gain new ideas for teaching.
One of the main feature of this course is that the course days are spread across the academic year, which each having a combination of:
- subject knowledge sessions where the focus is on deepening participants’ understanding of mathematics;
- example lessons where the focus is on pedagogy;
- facilitated reflections on these sessions.
