Innovation and Creativity in Mathematics Teaching
One-day Online conference for Mathematics teachers
26th June 2021; 09:30-15:30
Following our very successful inaugural Conference in July 2019, The Further Mathematics Support Programme Wales is pleased to announce our second one-day conference for Mathematics teachers from schools and colleges in Wales.
We are excited that opening the Conference this year will be:
Stephanie Howarth, Chief Statistician, Welsh Government
There will be four sessions in the day with lots of choice in each session. Sessions will be delivered by FMSPW specialists, teachers and academics.
Girls in Maths
We have Three Keynotes this year!
|Dr Alison Clark-Wilson |
Principal Research Associate at UCL Knowledge Lab, UCL Institute of Education
|Innovative and Creative Mathematics through Technology – Unlocking Curiosity for Deep Engagement|
|Neil Sheldon |
Former Vice President, Royal Statistical Society; Chair, The Teaching Statistics Trust
|We need to talk about statistics – The purpose of statistics is insight not numbers|
|Dr Sofya Lyakhova |
Associate Professor, Mathematics, Swansea University; FMSPW Programme Leader
|The Chaos of Interdisciplinarity – Art, mathematics and teaching mathematics|
We are including time for networking, exchanging ideas and jollity. We want to retain at least a flavour of the social & informal swapping of ideas that characterises a good Conference and so will be using a platform that allows for mingling and chatting in between sessions and allowing plenty of time for that.
There will be no cost for the day for teachers from state schools in Wales.
