The course has improved my knowledge of maths for the future and has also definitely impacted on my computing students.

Secondary Computing Teacher

Although an economics teacher, I will teach my maths classes next year with more of an understanding of the mastery approach.

Secondary Economics Teacher

I am teaching maths next year but not in regular schools. I have consistently used everything that I learnt throughout the sessions to enrich the learning of my pupils – I wish there were more sessions!

Secondary Maths Teacher

I have incorporated some maths into the geography lessons I have been teaching this term, eg. graph work, scales and distances.

Secondary Geography Teacher

It has given me time to reflect on the subject and my interest in teaching maths, this has allowed me to make decisions and plan what to do next.

Secondary Maths Teacher

My increased understanding and confidence means my lessons are more engaging for my students and I can link more effectively with the content of the science curriculum.
