Event description
If you cannot come to us, we shall come to you! Pre-recorded tasks, reading & think-pieces; with activities & online sessions on the day.

About this Event

Come and join us for a fantastic choice of workshops and activities from across all phases of mathematics education. Participants will be sent access to readings, think-pieces and activities and will receive access to high quality speakers, professional development workshops running throughout Saturday 23rd.

The Boolean Maths Hub is here to support you in improving outcomes for children in mathematics and in these challenging times some respite to look at your own professional development and discuss with other like-minded colleagues could be just the tonic to start 2021.

Come to what you can and participate as much as is possible.

Online discussions, activities (including some you can do with your children), interactive sessions and even wellness sessions will be available for you to choose. You can join in as much as you wish, either during the week before, using the shared resources, during 'live' sessions on the day, or (because right now that's just the way it might be) you can catch up on any sessions recorded on the Saturday. There will also be tasks, readings and recordings from our contributors available for you to access the week before.

Some workshop sessions on the day will have limited numbers, invitations to participate in these 'live' events will be sent out shortly. If you sign up for these please ensure that you can attend on the day due to the restricted numbers... we wouldn't want anyone to miss out.

We are delighted to welcome key speakers from across maths education who will present on a range of topics on the day.

Andrew Jeffery "Greater Depth for All" - Andrew set up Magic Message Maths in 2007 to serve the needs of maths teachers at both primary and secondary level. An expert in the pedagogy behind the Singapore approach to mathematics, he has published books on bar modelling and was part of the authoring team for Numicon (Oxford). Andrew’s most recent book is ‘Greater Depth in Primary Mathematics’ published in 2019. Andrew is also the founder and organiser of ‘Maths Week England’.

David Thomas "Successful Remote Learning" - David Thomas, Principal at Jane Austen College and Strategy Director at Inspiration Trust, was due to get married at Exeter College on 4 April. But when COVID-19 made this impossible, instead of going on a honeymoon, Thomas founded Oak National Academy to provide free online lessons for school pupils. David was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his outstanding services to education during the Covid-19 crisis. He has been awarded an OBE for his work helping not only his school but children at schools across the country during lockdown.

Debbie Morgan "Recovering from the Pandemic - supporting pupils with curriculum recovery in primary schools" - Debbie joined the NCETM in 2012, and, since 2014, has led the work of introducing teaching for mastery approaches to maths in primary schools across England. In that time, working alongside the national network of Maths Hubs, Debbie has trained and influenced many thousands of teachers. As a result, hundreds of thousands of primary school pupils have developed a more secure and more lasting mathematical understanding. This work is the culmination of an entire working life devoted to primary education, during which time Debbie has moved from class teacher to headteacher, and on to advisory and teacher-training roles with local authorities and universities. In 2015, she completed her doctorate with the Open University, which focused on the development of primary teachers’ mathematics subject knowledge. In addition, she has found time to be the maths consultant on the BAFTA award-winning CBeebies programme Numberblocks. Debbie was awarded a CBE for services to education in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List this year.

Dietmar Küchemann "Making sense of early algebra" - Dietmar taught mathematics in several London secondary schools and then worked as a lecturer and researcher in mathematics education at Chelsea College (CSMS project), the Institute of Education London (Longitudinal Proof Project and Proof Materials Project) and King’s College London (ICCAMS project). He has also been involved in writing (and publishing) school mathematics textbooks, including the design of lesson materials (eg NCETM Multiplicative Reasoning Project, ICCAMS project). Dietmar is now more or less retired.

Dr Pete Wright "Social justice in the maths classroom" - Before joining UCL Institute of Education as a Lecturer in Mathematics Education, Pete taught for 12 years in comprehensive schools in London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Brighton, and 3 years in a rural school in Kenya. His research interests include issues of equity and social justice in mathematics teaching, visible and invisible pedagogy, curriculum change, and participatory action research. Pete led the Boolean Maths Hub's innovation work group on 'Participatory action research and social justice' in 2019-20.
