#MathsMeet

We are delighted to invite you to our second #MathsMeet, hosted by Stockport School.

MathsMeets are designed to allow teachers to share good practise and innovation in an organised but informal setting - regardless of how long you have been teaching.

The theme for the evening is ‘How I Wish I’d Taught Maths’ delivered by Craig Barton, bestselling author and still a classroom practitioner.

Craig Barton has been teaching maths since 2004, predominantly in two comprehensive schools in the sunny North West of England, Range High School in Formby and Thornleigh Salesian College in Bolton. Four years into his career, Craig was appointed an Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) giving him the opportunity to work with and learn from many teachers and students in a wide variety of schools.

Since 2009, Craig has been the Secondary Mathematics adviser for the Times Educational Supplement (TES), the largest professional network of teachers in the world, reviewing, creating and sharing resources with hundreds of thousands of teachers. He is the creator of the popular mrbartonmaths.com website and blog, which provides free resources to teachers and students all around the world, with the aim of making maths more fun and exciting for everyone. Craig is the host of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, interviewing leading figures from the world of education, such as Dylan Wiliam, Doug Lemov, Daisy Christodoulou and Dan Meyer. He is the co-creator of Diagnostic Questions, a formative assessment website hosting the world's largest collection of high-quality maths diagnostic multiple choice questions, which aims to help students and teachers from all around the world to identify, understand and resolve key misconceptions, and currently has over 20 million answers and explanations.

Craig has been fortunate enough to give talks, run workshops and work with teachers and students all over the world, from Bangkok to Basingstoke. He is the author of the best-selling book, How I wish I'd taught maths: Lessons learned from research, conversations with experts, and 12 years of mistakes, and the author of 3 (non-maths!) novels. Fingers crossed he is also still married to Kate when you are reading this!

So, if you believe that teachers learn best from each other, you should join us.
