The Teaching Mechanics (TM) course has been written specifically for the Mathematics and Further Mathematics A levels in 2017. The course will enable teachers to develop their own subject knowledge and classroom practice in teaching Mechanics for A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. The course has two units; TM1 covers the compulsory content for the new linear A level and TM2 covers material from the Further Mathematics units.
The course aims to enable participants to:
Each of the TM modules provides the opportunity for sustained professional development. The courses are scheduled over a sustained period and consist of:
There are additional study days and support for those undertaking the PG Cert
TM1 is designed for A level Mathematics teachers who are already teaching some Mechanics or who wish to teach it at some point in the near future. TM2 is for teachers who have taught M1 and possibly M2 but wish to develop their understanding of further topics. It is not necessary to have done TM1 before doing TM2 providing that you have some experience of teaching at M1 level. You may be:
