The Teaching of Mathematics is Evolving Rapidly
The annual MathSpeak conference, inaugurated in London in Autumn 2013, is a mathematics conference that will appeal to senior teachers and school leaders. It provides practical advice and hands on sessions for those managing Mathematics staff and resources at secondary level, those integrating problem solving into the curriculum, and those grappling with engaging students and optimising the latest 21st century technologies. Return here soon for dates and venues for 2016.
Goal of the Conferences:
To provide a forum for senior Mathematics teachers and school leaders to share experience, see best practice and understand the latest developments in the teaching of mathematics to the 11 to 19 cohort.
We are delighted to announce that Hannah Fry was the 2015 key note speaker. Dr Hannah Fry is a lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. Alongside her academic position, Hannah is currently an EPSRC public engagement fellow, taking the joy of maths into theatres, pubs and schools. She also co-presents the BBC worldwide YouTube channel BritLabs (formerly Headsqueeze) and regularly appears on TV and radio in the UK.
