AS and A-level Maths Teaching guidance

Our Teaching guidance has been written to accompany the new AS and A-level Maths specification and is an essential tool to help you plan for first teaching in September 2017.  
For each topic within the specification content, the Teaching guidance:
  • clarifies how we have interpreted the content

  • explains what students should be able to do to meet the requirements of the topic

  • defines which content appears in the AS and which is A-level only

  • provides example questions to demonstrate how content may be assessed

  • supports teachers in delivering new or unfamiliar content.

The AS and A-level Maths Teaching guidance is available to download now. It was amended slightly in August 2017.

The AS and A-level Further Maths Teaching guidance will follow.

We recommend that you use the Teaching guidance alongside our Route Maps
