Innovation and Creativity in Mathematics Teaching

One-day conference for Mathematics teachers

26 June 2020 Swansea University, Bay Campus

Following our very successful inaugural Conference in July 2019, The Further Mathematics Support Programme Wales is pleased to announce our second one-day conference for Mathematics teachers from schools in Wales.

There will be two intertwined strands: 16-18 Mathematics and 11-18 Mathematics, Technology and Art.

The conference will be opened by Glyn Jones, Chief Statistician for Wales and the keynote speakers will be Dr Alison Clark-Wilson (UCL) and Neil Sheldon (Teaching Statistics Trust).

The conference includes sessions on:

  • The Flipped Classroom Approach and other innovative methods
  • Geogebra and digital resources
  • STEAM - Adding arts to STEM
  • Girls and Mathematics
  • Technology in statistics and the data-handling cycle
  • Mathematics assessment in Japan - Osaka Kyoiku University
  • A level Mathematics & Further Mathematics PL

All sessions are intended to equip delegates with practical ideas, skills and resources to implement in the classroom.

There will be no cost for the day and the finalised programme will be sent out soon. Any queries email: infofmspwales@wimcs.ac.uk. To book a free place register on Eventbrite.

Places are limited so don't delay!


The Further Mathematics Support Programme Wales (FMSPW) is a Welsh Government funded initiative. It is managed by the Wales Institute of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (WIMCS), a collaborative partnership of the universities of Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff, Swansea and the University of South Wales, and is supported by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI).

Our main aim is to provide Further Mathematics GCE AS/A2 level tuition for all English and Welsh awarding bodies to students who cannot access Further Mathematics through their local 11-18 schools or colleges in Wales.

For more information about FMSPW please see our leaflet.

Why Study Further Maths?

The following video is by a former Further Maths student Laasya Shekaran. She completed her A Level in Further Maths in 2014 and went on to study Maths at Warwick University, she previously attended Olchfa Comprehensive School in Swansea.

Year 11 Conference

"I’ve learnt that Maths has a lot more applications than I originally thought and is a great career option" Student Aberystwyth - September 2018

Further Maths A Level

“I really enjoyed the course and I would definitely recommend Further Maths to anyone who is interested in maths. Without Further Maths it is very unlikely that I would have received an offer from Cambridge University” - Anna Clancy – Student from Ysgol Maesydderwen – Jan 2014

MAT Summer School

“I have learned new ways to approach questions to find solutions. I now feel more confident in maths and have learnt more. I would have been a lot more worried about the MAT had the summer school not been available ” Swansea University – Summer 2018

Revision day

“Thank you so much! This was a brilliant session to prepare for M2 with a brilliant teacher. Thank you for covering everything! ” – Student from Bangor – June 2018
