Building confidence as a non-specialist secondary mathematics teacher MY213

If you are teaching mathematics outside your own specialism or someone in your maths department is a non-mathematics specialist, this course is designed to help increase your skills and knowledge of the subject and become more confident in your teaching of mathematics.


Do you want to feel more inspired, confident and increase your knowledge and skills when teaching mathematics even though mathematics is not your specialism?

In this intensive residential course, you will work with experienced teachers of mathematics in a supportive environment to explore the characteristics of good maths teaching. You will develop strategies to support your students and deepen understanding.  

During the course we will cover strategies to teach algebra for understanding, build and understanding of ratio and proportion on a firm foundation of multiplicative reasoning, use manipulatives and multiple representations, and develop approaches to problem solving.



You will be able to:

  • understand what is good mathematics teaching
  • learn how to overcome the difficulties typically faced by non-specialist teachers
  • teach for deeper understanding: making connections
  • build resilience: helping students to help themselves
  • develop questioning techniques to encourage mathematical thinking
