Join hundreds of maths teachers from primary, secondary and FE at the UK's largest events. Network. Learn. Share. Have fun!
Do you ever find that your students just don't remember what you taught last month, last week or even yesterday?
This session will review research and provide practical tips and ideas on what I have tried and tested and what I will be trying in the classroom to make Mathematics 'stick' so students remember concepts. You will also have the opportunity to discuss and reflect upon your own classroom practice.
Hinal has had several different roles from being in charge of Numeracy to KS3 Coordinator. She is passionate about teaching and learning and has completed an MA in Education. Hinal is now the Head of Mathematics and KS4 leader at Vyners School, London. The Mathematics department at Vyners School is now in the top 4% of Maths departments in the country and top 2% for disadvantaged students.
At each conference, we ask delegates to bring along their favourite resources, ideas, hints and tips. Everyone has 90 seconds to tell a colleague about their idea, before swapping and hearing from them.
There is usually time for five or six 'dates', so be ready to spread the word about what is making your classroom buzz right now.
Feel free to bring handouts, weblinks, etc.
Our cake competition is always a highlight of the day. Dozens of delegates battle it out to be crowned the winner of the maths-themed cake bake-off.
Cakes are judged at lunchtime by our guest speaker and prizes awarded at the end of the day.
Be sure to visit the cake stands to see your colleagues' handywork. And, of course, to sample the cakes for yourself! They are delicious!
Lots of us help each other out on Twitter. We give advice, support or just share jokes and experiences. But who are the people behind the Twitter handles? That's what a Tweetup is all about - a meet up for Twitter friends, putting faces to names or pseudonyms. Come along to the bonus session during the lunch break and say hello to the maths teacher Twitterati.
Be sure to identify yourself in some way! Surely someone will at least get a t-shirt made?!
You are welcome to join in and get stuck in to doing some maths.
This is an informal session - drop in as you like.
