Core Maths Winter Festival

Friday 27th November 2020

We're excited to announce that our free, online Core Maths Winter Festival is now open for bookings! Our series of online sessions for all secondary teachers in the UK will return in January 2021, after the huge success of the Core Maths Summer Festival that we ran earlier this year. Want to be enthused, challenged, and enlightened, all from the comfort of your own home (or classroom)? This is the festival for you…

Our Core Maths Winter Festival will feature one-hour talks from three inspirational speakers:

Kicking it all off with a breakfast session on Saturday 16 January 2021 is Tim Harford, who will highlight gems from his latest book, and provide inspiration to pass on to your students.

Join Rob Eastaway for a sporting afternoon tea on Thursday 21 January 2021, where you'll discover what sport can teach you about ranking and decision making in every walk of life.

Bringing the festivities to a close is Angela Saini on Saturday 23 January 2021, who will explore what the data says about racial disparity and health and how it has been reported in the context of the pandemic, helping to increase your confidence in tackling challenging contexts in the classroom.

Microphones and webcams aren't necessary for these sessions, as participating teachers will be able to ask questions via a chat function.

Our Core Maths Winter Festival is suitable for all secondary maths teachers, regardless of how much experience you have with Core Maths (if any). The sessions are also relevant for teachers of other subjects that incorporate some mathematical content, such as Biology, Geography, and Social Science. You can view more information and register for sessions on the AMSP website.

These sessions are free of charge to all teachers from state-funded schools, colleges and academies in England. Teachers based in others parts of the UK or in independent schools and colleges may apply, but places will only be allocated if there is availability.
