La Salle Education will be hosting @LaSalleEd MathsConf19 #MathsConf19 on Saturday 22nd June 2019, tickets still available.


'Building Confidence in Lower Ability Learners’ ' is a blog preview of Adam Mercer's #MathsConf19 session/workshop being run at #MathsConf19.

Do you have a bottom set that just struggle to get started? Are there pupils sat around wanting to avoid work at all costs? Do you have pupils that give-up before they even get going? This session aims to provide with ideas and the tools to help you motivate and develop those reluctant learners into more willing and able mathematicians. The session is aimed mainly for teachers with lower sets/foundation GCSE students but is suitable for all teachers of KS3 and KS4.

You can see Adam Mercer speak about "Building Confidence in Lower Ability Learners" during #MathsConf19 at the Penistone Grammar School on Saturday 22nd June

Don't forget in July we also have our 'FREE' Maths Teacher Network events in association with Oxford University Press and AQA.

We look forward to seeing you at our next La Salle Education Event if you don't already, follow us on Twitter @LaSalleEd
