Mixed Attainment Maths Conference June 2017
Sat 17 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
On the 17th June 2017 we are holding the second mixed attainment maths conference. This is a conference for secondary school teachers of mathematics who are keen to develop ways of working with mixed-attainment groups.
The first mixed-attainment mathematics teaching conference took place at the University of Birmingham in January 2017 and Sheffield Hallam University have kindly offered to host this second conference.
Workshops will be organised by people who are currently teaching, or who have taught mathematics in mixed-attainment classrooms from KS3 to KS4.
The intention is to share practices through active participation regarding strategies, ideas and resources for teaching in mixed-attainment classrooms.
The conference will be an opportunity for both those people who did attend and also those were not able to attend the first conference.
The aim of those organising the conference is: To help form a community of teachers who share a common belief in social justice and the value of not separating children into groups according to some notion of their (fixed) ‘ability.’
Whilst we are keen for this conference to be free, there are some costs involved in organising it and all of the presenters give their time for free without any expenses paid. If you would like to make a donation, we are suggesting £5 per person. You can either select a free ticket on eventbrite or make a donatiion when you order your ticket or give some money on the day.
