The Society is delighted to be working with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (managed by MEI) on our 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.
