Welcome to the Core Maths research project at the University of Leeds

About the Project

This work is funded by the Nuffield Foundation and the full title of the project is The early take-up of Core Mathematics: successes and challenges.

The project runs from March 2017 to March 2020.

 

 

 

Essentially, we are investigating how provision of this new and important post-16 mathematics qualification is developing across England. We are interested in the reasons why it is succeeding in certain institutions, and the barriers to its success in others.

If you want to contribute to the research please Get Involved. We are particularly keen to hear the views of higher education instituitons, and schools/colleges who have considered offering Core Maths but have decided not to.
