Harnessing the "power" of maths

"Maths is not just a subject studied in the classroom. It is relevant and important in our lives beyond the school gates, whether we are looking to understand our economy and natural world, engage with society or manage our personal lives. Maths can also unlock doors by giving us the tools we need to access new learning... or pursue a career that increases our earning power."

This is one of the key themes showcased in our new Power of Maths Report, which details the steps needed to enhance Britain’s approach to maths education, and help inspire confidence and success among children.


The report draws upon the insights gathered at our inaugural Power of Maths Roundtable, which took place in late 2018. The roundtable saw leading practitioners and academics join school, business and third sector leaders to explore how we can collectively transform perceptions of maths, both inside and outside the classroom.

With the support of Roundtable host and TES editor, Ann Mroz, and speakers including maths teacher and comedian Kyle Evans; leading academic, Dr Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai and maths practitioner, Danielle Ashley; delegates discussed everything from mastery, maths anxiety, promoting STEM careers - and lots more.

You can speak to Pearson as one of the exhibitors 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.
