Description

Understanding the Barriers to Success in Mathematics

Dr Camilla Gilmore

Dr Gilmore is a Reader in Mathematical Cognition in the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University. Her research is focused on understanding how mathematics skills develop. She says:

"Many students find mathematics challenging. One reason for this is that mathematics draws upon a wide range of cognitive skills, including general thinking skills, such as working memory, as well as mathematics-specific skills such as conceptual knowledge.

Consequently, students may struggle with mathematics in many different ways. I will discuss the implications of this for how mathematics difficulties are identified as well as the types of support needed."

Doors open 6:30pm for a prompt 7:00pm start
