Changes to Level 3 Mathematics in England

free 
The Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) is holding a one-day event in London on 29th November 2016 at the Imperial Hotel, 61-66 Russell Square, London WC1B 5BB.
The aim of the day is to discuss the major developments in level 3 mathematics and the implications of these changes for recruitment of undergraduates. New A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics specifications begin first teaching in September 2017. Along with the other reformed A levels these will be linear courses with AS grades no longer counting towards the A level grade. In summer 2016 almost 3000 students took the new Core Maths qualifications, which are designed to extend students’ mathematical skills beyond GCSE, focusing on problem-solving and modelling. The event will be of particular interest to departmental admissions tutors, heads of department, directors of studies for 1st year courses, widening participation coordinators and outreach coordinators. By attending the event you will have more detailed information about the changes and the potential impact they may have on the curriculum offered to 16-19 year old students in England. There will be opportunities to discuss with colleagues how HEIs can respond to these changes and provide clear signals to schools and colleges, students and their parents, to encourage appropriate mathematical preparation for different degree subjects. There is no charge for attendance. To book your place please follow this link http://bit.ly/2apHyvn (booking for this event is now closed).
