Core Maths Winter Festival with Rob Eastaway
Our Winter Core Maths Festival is comprised of three one-hour talks by three inspirational speakers. We hope that these will enthuse, challenge and enlighten you and offer a springboard to the creation of, even more, fantastic Core Maths lessons.
Who will benefit from attending?
These sessions are designed to appeal to all maths teachers, regardless of how much experience of Core Maths you have had, if any. These sessions are also likely to appeal to teachers of other subjects that incorporate some mathematical content, such as Biology, Geography and Social Science.
Speaker: Rob Eastaway
Algorithms; Mathematical models; Statistical analysis. These Core Maths skills are more relevant today than they have ever been. And one of the most engaging ways to learn about them is through sport!
You may not realise this, but Maths Inspiration guru and author of eleven books, Rob Eastaway, has been instrumental in developing the way in which sporting performance has been measured throughout the world. With examples that range from football to tennis, cricket to darts, Rob will explore the maths of sport, revealing how analytical techniques are used to rank the world’s top performers, improve player strategies, and make contests fairer.
Whether you are a sports nut, just somebody who occasionally watches a big match on TV or not interested in sport at all, this fascinating talk will give you insights into what sport can teach us about ranking and decision making in every walk of life.
