The Festival Finale: A celebration!Online
Please note this is an extended session but if you can only make part of the session please apply anyway and attend the part for which you are available.
Tom Crawford opened our festival at the end of April and we are delighted to welcome him back for another batch of intriguing mathematical ideas.
You will also hear a medley of lightening talks from experienced Core Maths teachers. From lockdown learning to inspiring lessons you will be left with enough food for thought to take you through to September!
This webinar is one of an extensive series, taking place as part of our Core Maths Online Festival. The sessions are designed to appeal to all teachers of maths and, in some cases, teachers of other subjects.
