|Description||This inspiring conference aims to help you challenge damaging stereotypes and to re-energise and revolutionise the way you teach and pupils learn mathematics. How many times have you heard someone say ‘I can’t do maths’? According to the National Numeracy charity, around 17 million adults in England are at roughly the same level as that expected of children in primary school. So what do we need to do to help our children be successful in maths? Many pupils believe that maths is a long list of rules and procedures to be learned off by heart. Too much focus upon memorisation by rote and speed can be the cause of maths anxiety. But it can be a subject with real relevance in which pupils can be curious, inventive and empowered. We are delighted that Professor Jo Boaler, author of the ‘Elephant in the Classroom’ and founder of Youcubed, will deliver the keynote speech. Jo will explore ways to bust the myth about the existence of a ‘maths brain’. Everybody can be good at maths if they experience the right teaching and develop the right mindset. Effort is more important than talent! Join us for what will be a very thought-provoking day. Hear from other speakers and explore the ways we can make this a reality in our classrooms.|
