This site is a resource to provide a single starting point for those wishing to know where studying mathematics can lead. The website has a particular focus on young people between the age of 11 and 19.

In this section you will find a range of resources that support the teaching of maths in the classroom. These resources can also be drawn on by parents and those who run enrichment activities such as after school STEM clubs. What teachers will also find across the site and in this section are maths materials that illustrate aspects of maths in real life, maths in the world of work and the careers that maths can lead to.

At the heart of this site is the maths community and their professional organisations. By combining the resources of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the London Mathematical Society, and the Royal Statistical Society these organisations have been able to provide a valuable source of advice and information as a single site.

Careers and real life contexts that draw on maths are not always visible in the school curriculum, but resources that set maths in context are growing. The STEM Subject Choice and Careers project (funded by DCSF) aims to support careers professionals and teachers with relevant, up to date information, resources and professional development to enthuse and inform pupils.

Mathematics Teaching Self-evaluation Tools
The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) is updating the online Self-evaluation Tools, which help teachers audit their subject knowledge and pedagogy. The change is necessary to bring the tools into line with the mathematics content in the new National Curriculum. To aid this process, they have created a short, ten question survey, for present and past users of the SET to give feedback on how they have found using the tools. Everyone completing the survey will be given the chance to enter a draw for £50 worth of Amazon vouchers.
