Keynote Address – Jo Morgan

Strength in Numbers
The formation of The Mathematical Association marked the beginning of an era of collaboration amongst maths teachers. Whether in maths department meetings, in local area networks, at national conferences, or in thriving online communities – maths teachers know that there’s strength in numbers. In this talk we’ll look at the development and future of collaboration in maths education. We’ll shine a spotlight on some brilliant examples of maths teachers working together over recent years, to benefit both the children we teach and the development of the profession.

Plenary session with Alison Borthwick & Alan Cross

Finding the ‘M’ in STEM This session is about the meaningful integration of subjects based on our strong conviction that explicit subject links are valuable but that they must be meaningful. The contribution of mathematics is irrefutable and is, we feel, both the warp and weft of STEM. However, at a deeper level what does mathematics really bring to the STEM table?

We anticipate this to be an interactive session where we will explore the ‘M’ in STEM through active engagement with our virtual audience. Be prepared to do a little dance, think like a robot and re-engineer existing objects.
