If you enjoyed talking maths at OCR's popular 'pop up' event in February, here's another opportunity to debate the maths curriculum.
Our parent organisation, Cambridge Assessment, is hosting an event on 15 May to discuss whether the 'right' maths is being taught in schools today. Maths skills are core to our understanding of other subjects and integral to the vitality of a modern economy. But how can we make maths relevant? And how can we ensure that students get a 'proper' maths education at the right age?
The event will bring together practitioners, researchers, policy makers and all those with an interest in the field.
Date: 15 May 2013
Time: 1.00pm – 4.00 pm (registration from 12.30 pm)
Venue: The British Library, London
Speakers will include: Lynn Churchman, National Numeracy; Charlie Stripp, MEI; Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessment; Jennie Golding, ACME; Janet De Wilde, Higher Education Academy; Conrad Wolfram, Wolfram Mathematica; Tony Gardiner, British mathematician; and Mark McCourt, Teacher Development Trust and Beluga Learning.
