Geography provides an important opportunity to develop mathematical, quantitative and statistical techniques
The Society is delighted to be working with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (managed by MEI) to launch our new Geography and Core Maths initiative.
The Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) is a government-funded initiative, managed by MEI, providing national support for teachers and students in all state-funded schools and colleges in England. It aims to increase participation in AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, and Core Maths, and to improve the teaching of these qualifications.
A Level geography provides an important opportunity for young people to develop their confidence and competence in using mathematical, quantitative and statistical techniques, as these skills are a requirement of geography specifications.
The initiative focuses on building support for the circa 80% of young geographers who currently do not study maths beyond the age of 16, and raising awareness of how Core Maths can support geography students during their A Levels and transition to undergraduate studies in geography. It will also provide CPD for geography teachers, online resources and other support.
Charlie Stripp, Chief Executive of MEI, said: “MEI is delighted to be working with the Society to inform teachers and stakeholders about Core Maths and promote its uptake. Core Maths focuses on the application of maths to situations that students are likely to come across in future life, work and study and will enable students to have greater confidence in working with the mathematical and statistical techniques they encounter in A Level geography and beyond.”
