Resources for Teachers

Our events and teaching materials are aimed at promoting the study of mathematics and statistics at A Level and beyond.

Year 10 Conference

Our annual Year 10 Conference is usually held in late September or early November.

Typically, there are two hour-long lectures during the afternoon, separated by a short refreshment break. The lectures are aimed at encouraging pupils to continue studying mathematics at A Level.

Previous speakers have included Professor Robin Johnson (Newcastle University), Dr Lee Fawcett (Newcastle University), Dr Paul Baxter (Royal Statistical Society (RSS) Guy Lecturer) and Professor Philip Moriarty (Nottingham University).

WISDOM: Women in Science Doing Outstanding Maths

Our annual WISDOM event is usually held in June. This event focuses on promoting the study of Mathematics at A-Level and beyond to girls.

There will be two short mathematics talks and a careers session. The careers session comprises a short talk introducing different careers where a strong mathematical background is useful and a careers carousel where the participants have the opportunity to speak to inspirational women from a range of different careers where studying mathematics may be beneficial.

Challenges

Every year, we run a Challenge and Senior Challenge for students in Years 8 and 10. The best entrants, along with teachers, family and friends are invited to a prize-giving evening at Newcastle University in May.
