Maths for Social Change

We have created some resources for Maths Week England (11th-15th November) to inspire students to use maths to motivate action for social change. Topics include climate change, homelessness and the gender pay gap. This session will enable you to try them out and reflect on other ways to embed these contexts in lessons.

Interpreting Graphs

You only have to open a newspaper…or social media application…to be bombarded with graphical information. Are our students being equipped to deal with this information overload? This session will focus on how information presented in graphical form provides teachers with an opportunity to inspire curiosity in their learners, deepen understanding and hook them into contexts within and beyond the curriculum.

Teaching Correlation

This session will lead through a lesson on correlation and some ideas of how to teach it. We will also look at some examination questions from the different examination boards to explore how it is assessed both in Maths lessons and other subject areas.
