Keynote address - Professor Anne Watson

I want to expose the value of professional wisdom and experience as valid sources of true knowledge about what it means to do, know and learn mathematics. Taking the solution of unfamiliar, non-routine, problems as the ultimate aim of school mathematics I shall go beyond the gaze of cognitive science and celebrate the complexities of teaching and learning this wonderful subject.

Numeracy in the UK and the Importance of Maths Teachers

Every student should leave school competent and confident in everyday maths but sadly, this is not the case for many students in the UK.
In this talk Susan will explore the often unspoken issue of poor numeracy in the UK, particularly amongst adults and she will look at the impact this has on our children, our economy and society as whole.

This talk will highlight the crucial role maths teachers play in improving this situation and in making the world a fairer place. Susan will share some ideas on how to support people (children and adults) to enjoy and feel more confident doing maths but the main aim of this talk is to encourage discussion, ideas, sharing and collaboration.
