## FMSP Enrichment Posters

The FMSP has produced a series of four posters designed to stimulate interest in studying mathematics beyond GCSE level. The posters illustrate some applications of mathematics that GCSE students would not usually encounter.

These posters can be obtained from your area coordinator. You can also request copies from the FMSP admin team: [email protected]. A file containing all of the posters can be downloaded by clicking on the image below.

## FMSP Enrichment Lesson Plans

The FMSP has produced sets of lesson plans which can be used in the classroom to enrich the mathematical experience of your students. Each lesson plan consists of a presentation, teachers notes and any resources required, usually in a workbook.
