Spode Group

The Spode Group was a group of mathematics teachers and lecturers who were developing curriculum material in secondary mathematics which encourages the use of applying mathematics to practical problems.

This collection of resources includes problems for students in lower secondary schools through to those presented in Enterprising Mathematics, which later developed into a modular GCSE, GCSE coursework ideas and a range of materials suitable for A level students.


The Spode Group produced a number of resources to support problem solving in mathematics through real life problems. Some of the resources were produced to support the C.S.E. syllabus and others were written at the time mathematics teachers were preparing for coursework to become a compulsary part of the assessment...

A Level Resources

A number of resources produced by the Spode Group aimed at teachers and students of advanced level mathematics. The aim of each publication is to show teachers and students applications of the mathematics covered in the A level syllabus. The resources include a wide range of interesting problems and applications...
