Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Develop new ways of teaching maths and create stimulating learning environments using teaching methods developed in countries with high achieving maths students.

As part of your course you’ll:

Discover how to use geometric tools and devices to teach mathematics
Study the effective use of interactive white boards and online maths resources
Learn how to use traditional textbooks to devise your own teaching resources

This course is available as University-led or School Direct delivery.

We’ll teach you to think outside the box when considering how to make maths an interesting and relevant subject for your pupils. You’ll be encouraged to organise external visits to help your pupils understand how maths is used in the real world. You’ll also learn how to stimulate interest and excitement in solving mathematical problems.Aside from developing your ability to teach, you’ll also hone your communication and interpersonal skills. You’ll be able to instil confidence in your pupils so they can achieve their potential. And you’ll learn how to motivate support staff so they can help you deliver outstanding lessons.

Training models
You can choose from two different training models:

University-led: You’ll develop your theoretical knowledge at our Headingley Campus, which offers a superb learning environment, modern facilities and excellent resources. Your learning will be informed by the very latest research and the expertise of our supportive teaching staff. We’ll organise your extensive school placements so you can apply your knowledge in a classroom setting and your placements will be timetabled to fit with your taught seminars on campus.

School Direct: For the majority of your course, you’ll be based in your provider school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You’ll attend our Headingley Campus one day a week (usually a Friday) for key module seminars.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
