Workshops

Developing Excellence in Mathematics

 KS3 
 KS4 

Best-selling author Simon Singh outlines three current projects that he has pioneered in the UK, aimed at encouraging more students to achieve excellence in maths from Year 7 upwards. The Parallel Project offers free online maths worksheets each weekend, which are automatically marked and which are designed to stretch the most ambitious and able students. Parallel is freely available to all schools, just like his second project, Who Wants To Be A Mathematician, which is a maths competition aimed at 6th formers. And the Top-Top Set Maths Project currently works with a dozen schools to subsidise an additional maths set (beyond the normal top set), with the intention of consistently stretching the keenest maths students from Year 7 upwards.

Simon Singh @slsingh

Simon Singh completed a PhD in particle physics before becoming a TV producer and authoring “Fermat’s last Theorem”, the first maths book to become a No.1 bestseller in the UK. His other books include “The Code Book” and “The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets”. He has also presented maths programmes on BBC radio and TV.


Extras

Maths Cake Competition

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.

Happy dating!

TweetUp and do some maths!

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.

Maths Cake Competition

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!
