    I was wondering whether to mention it in my PS. I am doing 12 Maths modules in one year on 6.5 hours per week teaching time. I know some people do it with absolutely no teaching whatsoever but I was wondering how much teaching time everyone else gets cos if its similar then I don't want to sound like a **** and put it in my PS.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't bother say anything - your right, u don't want to look like a ********. And you'll probably sound like your bragging whatever you say.

    Personally our group got 9 hours a week, because we got 4.5 hours a week teaching for each subject. That allowed us to cover the A-level modules in the first year and the Further Maths modules in the second year. It may be worth putting in how many hours per week you devote to maths both in class and out of class.

    Having said that, sometimes my lessons hardly felt like lessons with having the girls gossiping constantly and having the guys either talking about their latest sexual endeavor [including a class member getting off with a 30 year old and then saying to her "you're old enough to be my mum!!" Haha] or their manly muscles.

    I'd be interested to see the proportion of students who got formal teaching for both Maths and Further Maths.

    For Maths, I get 9 hours a fortnight. This is the same in both AS and A2 year.

    This year, I'm taking up Further Maths at AS Level and having either four/five lessons a fortnight (depending on how the timetabling works out!)

    Next year, I will be scheduled for 10 hours a week (five hours a subject) but I will likely only use 7/8 of them as I will not need the applied lessons (except for D2, two lessons a week)

    12 maths modules in one year is gurtnagorous, how many other subjects are you doing at the same time?

    For a start, I don't have a clue what this means. Secondly, I am also doing AS+A2 Physics and maybe AH Philosophy

    gurtnagorous is idiomatic of human/mole hybrids across the South-West

    Basically what you would be doing if you did all of that is 21 units, equivalent to 7 AS units, which is a fair deal considering none of them are general studies/critical thinking...however, seeing as they are all maths related and the physics course is not particularly big (still hard!) then you should be able to cope

    we were scheduled 9 hours teaching per week, but in reality this was closer to 4 - the rest being taken up by anecdotes, general chaos and arguments.

    Our A2 Mathematics 'lessons' were like that. Because two of us basically taught ourselves A2 Maths over the summer the teachers didn't bother teaching anyone
    I remember a debate on mickey mouse subjects particularly fondly.

    we spent ages talking about the building work going on, and why the builders were so bad. and then there was the whole rotating the room round - desks, board etc by pi/2 degrees. and the endless arguments about liverpool and how we would never win the champions league. and uno.

    one of the most surreal maths lessons we had was for p5 revision. our teacher had already given us 2 of the 4 lessons of that week, but when he asked us a question about polar graphs and we answered it correctly, he said that it was wrong and threw the whole class out because we didnt get it. this was no more than 10 minutes into the lesson...
