Join together in making maths better

The MTN is a collaboration between La Salle Education, AQA and Oxford University Press. The MTN provides regular, free professional development for teachers in primary and secondary schools.

Workshops

Algebra Tiles: A Crash Course - Mark McCourt

Concrete materials are so important in teaching maths; Mark will lead a quick session on the use of algebra tiles across the age and ability range. There will be time to try out the method too!

Advanced Bar Modelling - Liz Henning

Liz Henning will take Bar Modelling to the next stage, looking at more complex problems that can be tackled using this powerful visual method and lead on to topics such as simultaneous equations.

Problem Solving - Andrew Taylor

Andrew will explore some problems for use in the maths classroom and consider the impact on teaching and learning as well as thinking about how assessment can arise from problem solving tasks.

Our MTN events are about the power of collaboration. We believe we are better when we come together and help each other. In this spirit, our regional events are hosted by volunteer schools. If you would like to host an event, please get in touch.

Hosting an event requires:

A member of your staff to deliver a 30 minute opening plenary
Somewhere we can eat our packed lunches together
If you can stretch to it, some tea, coffee and biscuits (we can help with costs if needed)

Energy and a willingness to share your expertise
