Core Maths Summer Conference 2020Sheffield
A free and engaging one-day professional development conference designed for teachers in schools and colleges who are either offering, or thinking about offering, Core Maths. The day will focus on approaches for planning, teaching and learning Core Maths. This year, there will be a particular focus on personal finance and how Core Maths relates to careers and life beyond the classroom. We are excited that at each of these conferences we will be hearing from an engaging keynote speaker, who comes with a wealth of experience of working with both teachers and students.
Delegates will get ample opportunity to gather resources and ideas, and share experiences with teachers from other schools and colleges. The content of the Summer 2020 Conferences is all new, so the days will be valuable to returning delegates as well as those who have not previously attended a Core Maths professional development event.
- Develop pedagogical approaches for planning and teaching Core Maths effectively.
- Explore and share resources for the teaching of Core Maths, including our free online Core Maths Platform.
- Network and share ideas with fellow teachers of Core Maths.
Who will benefit from attending?
These conferences are suitable for any teacher who is currently teaching Core Maths, or who expects to do so in the near future. If you are yet to teach Core Maths or offer it in your school or college, you will find our case studies a useful starting point. The content covered on the day will be relevant to all of the Core Maths specifications.
Priority will be given to teachers from state-funded schools and colleges.
Numbers in the News
In a world of fake news, it's important to be able to think critically about what we are told in the media. This thought-provoking talk features games and experiments, and takes the audience on a tour of misleading statistics from real news stories. This talk will help to inspire the statisticians of the future and empower your students to make informed decisions in their own lives.
After completing a degree in mathematics, Zoe trained as a secondary maths teacher with the University of Oxford. It was in these initial experiences of teaching that she first developed her love for maths communication. After teaching for four years, Zoe took up a position at the Royal Institution (the home of Christmas Lectures) and then began her work with Think Maths in April 2017. Zoe's work in maths communication has seen her give talks and deliver workshops for students, families and teachers, in schools both in the UK and internationally, in the world-famous Royal Institution lecture theatre, and at science festivals and teacher conferences.
This conference is free of charge. Schools and colleges located within Priority Areas are eligible to receive a further subsidy of £250 to support staff cover and travel costs.
