The Further Mathematics Support Programme supports the enrichment of students’ experience of mathematics through organising events and providing stimulating resources.
Formats used to provide enrichment opportunities include:
We provide many free 11-16 resources, covering specific topics and more general skills such as problem solving and modelling. Some activities are designed for independent or individual work while some are better suited to group work. We have also collected them together within Integral for convenience and have 'scored' them according to difficulty so you can choose activities appropriate to your classes. You can click this button to log into Integral as a guest and see what we have on offer.
Enrichment lessons can be accessed directly from enrichment materials page .
Additional ideas and resources for lessons can be found in the Improving Learning in Mathematics: The 'Standards Unit' box and the The Shell Centre resources. These are hosted in the STEM e-library and you may need to register with the STEM Centre; this is free.Post-16 enrichment information and resources can be found here.
Each year the FMSP organises enrichment events that are attended by more than 10,000 Key Stage 4 students, these are often at local universities but can also take place in schools and colleges. The events provide a taste of mathematics beyond GCSE and stimulate students' interest in mathematics. In addition FMSP Area Coordinators visit and organise events in schools and colleges to promote mathematics, including enrichment experiences and heats of the FMSP Maths Feast competition and the Senior Team Mathematics Challenge.
Details of large scale events will be sent to schools/colleges registered with the FMSP or please check the Enrichment Events page for dates of upcoming events.
If you want to arrange an in-school enrichment experience for your school or would be able to host an enrichment event, please contact your local FMSP Area Coordinator.
Enrichment Professional DevelopmentThe FMSP runs two and three day courses which support teachers in developing secondary school students. These courses are usually funded for state schools and more details can be found on our Extension and Enrichment page.
