Students complete engaging challenges, collect evidence of their work and identify skills development. The challenges in the mathematics programme have a contextual approach, applying subject material to day-to-day events. This reflects the greater emphasis in the mathematics GCSE on applying new skills and knowledge to real-life problems and situations.
Learners can access the course in two ways:
- Learner workbook: Learners can complete challenges in the learner workbook and gather additional evidence in their portfolio. The workbooks include space for tutors to log feedback, with a record of progress page to demonstrate students’ progress throughout the course. Download sample pages from the Accelerating Progress mathematics learner workbook.
- E-portfolio: Each learner will receive a login for the e-portfolio, where they will be able to view challenges, upload evidence and access resources. The e-portfolio shows learners’ recent activity and which challenge they need to move on to next.
Electronic copies of a wide range of learner resources such as worksheets and templates are provided when you purchase a copy of the tutor support manual, along with challenge walk-throughs offering a step-by-step guide to each challenge.
Tutor support manual
A tutor support manual is available for the Accelerating Progress mathematics course. This resource has been designed to support experienced mathematics practitioners as well as non-specialists in delivering the course.
The manual includes detailed tutor notes for each challenge and information on mathematics skills development. Print copies of the manuals include an electronic version, which contains learner resources.
For centres new to ASDAN, your first step is to complete the Centre Registration Form. Current ASDAN centres need to ensure that Accelerating Progress is added to their centre's registration.
Following registration, you will be able to purchase resources and e-portfolio logins via the members area of this website.
ASDAN members area
Once your centre is registered with ASDAN for Accelerating Progress, you can find further information and resources in the members area. This section of the website contains all the essential documents, forms and updates that you need to deliver your course.
There is no limit to the number of people from a centre who can register to use the members area. You can create a new user account using the online form.
Once students' work has been internally moderated, centres can request certificates for successful candidates from ASDAN.
