This term we are offering in-school support and new training opportunities for the member of staff leading on Mathematics Across the Curriculum.
We have developed a Mathematics Across the Curriculum toolkit which is designed to strengthen the connections between learning in mathematics and learning in other subjects. The electronic toolkit comprises a set of practical resources designed around sixteen Mathematics Across the Curriculum objectives. It includes guidance for senior leaders and subject leaders along with tools to inform training needs and templates for monitoring. Together these combine to offer a strategic approach to developing connections between learning in subjects. The toolkit is available as follows:
- Purchased alongside a half day advisory meeting with a strategic leader in your school
- As part of a one day training event, alongside membership of an electronic good practice network
- Purchased as a stand-alone resource
The contents of the Mathematics Across the Curriculum toolkit include:
- 16 MAC objectives – a word document listing 16 objectives selected and adapted from mathematics objectives so that they are relevant to other subjects.
- Guide to the MAC objective – a set of 16 word documents provided in the toolkit. The guides include key vocabulary and suggestions for addressing likely difficulties.
- 16 MAC objectives Scheme of Work checklist – a spreadsheet to be completed by each subject leader and collated by the Mathematics Across the Curriculum coordinator
- Departmental self-assessment against MAC objectives– a spreadsheet for use in a department meeting. The subject team will discuss the meaning of the objectives within the subject and will then identify CPD needs.
Current MAC training dates:
- July 1st George Spencer Academy, Arthur Mee Road, Stapleford, Nottingham, NG9 7EW
July 11th King David High School, Eaton Road, Manchester, M8 5DY
