    In Depth

    What will I study?

    This programme is your opportunity to study mathematics at degree level in key areas of pure mathematics, proof and logic, calculus, modelling and statistics. You will develop your aptitude to use mathematics as a means of communication and gain an understanding of the relationship between real world problems and mathematical models. You will also be trained to become a high quality professional teacher who fosters subject enjoyment and promotes numeracy across the curriculum as well as confidence among pupils.

    How will I study?

    You will learn through your time in university and out on placement. The approaches to teaching and learning are varied and include lectures, tutorials, independent study, practical workshops and seminars. The Edge Hill University Partnership is actively involved in the promotion of mathematics in local schools.

    You will spend a significant amount of time on placement. This puts your training into practice through assisting in, and taking responsibility for, classes, being trained by, and working alongside, mentors and peers to further your professional development. Your teaching timetable will increase as your training progresses and you become more confident in the classroom.

    You will work with pupils from various areas, backgrounds and abilities providing you with excellent experience in classroom management and the ability to teach individuals and groups at a range of levels.

    How will I be assessed?

    You will be assessed through work based on your classroom experience, showing your ability to plan effectively, undertake assessment and develop your subject knowledge. Your mathematics subject knowledge is assessed through a combination of programme work assignments, examinations and presentations. As you progress from observer to teacher in school, you will be assessed through lesson observation reports. Your professional development will be mapped against the Teachers’ Standards (2012) for the award of QTS.

    Who will be teaching me?

    You will be taught by tutors at the cutting edge of national developments within education who write textbooks and mathematics schemes for national publication.

    The programme team run an annual national competition for schools and is actively involved in the promotion of mathematics in local schools. These links are of real benefit to our trainees and allow the opportunity for a series of Royal Institution masterclasses for Year 9 pupils to be planned and delivered by Secondary Mathematics Education students each year.
