Just some simple updates this week – note some new documents on the A Level Reform page. There are already several very clear resources from MEI who continue to document the new specifications. See their comparison of the specifications from the different Examination Boards which provides a summary of the differences between the current and the 2017 specifications for AS and A level Mathematics and also Considerations for choosing a new specification.
Something to keep an eye on is MEI’s 2017 Scheme of Work which will be freely available from Spring 2017. The sample units currently available look excellent. Each unit (there will be 43) is based on a topic and includes a commentary of the underlying mathematics, a sample resource, a use of technology, links with other topics, common errors, opportunities for proof and questions to promote mathematical thinking.
Staying with MEI – check the Conference 2016 resources which includes a session on teaching Statistics as part of the new A Level specification and notes from several other sessions on the new A Level specifications.

Hi Colleen thanks for putting links to all the different resources you find. I was wondering do you have anything for GCSE Statistics
Not GCSE Statistics as a separate subject Manus. I do have a post on Statistics in the new GCSE which may include some useful material Statistics – GCSE and I assume you have seen the CIMT Unit on Statisics? CIMT – GCSE (Unit 20) Statistics (scroll down the page)
