Teach Too: Reading College: collaborating with employers to deliver maths in the context of the Green Car Project

Summary Teach Too is about encouraging people from industry to spend time teaching their work through curriculum development, promoting the practice of teachers and trainers updating their industry experience and helping to build genuine collaborative arrangements between employer and providers. Students often struggle with the fundamental rules of maths if they are not studied in an applied way. Through this project, the maths curriculum was analysed and then linked to the design and manufacture of the Green Powered car so that real world problems, in both the design and manufacture, were developed in a range of maths skills areas.
