OCR’s parent body, Cambridge Assessment, held a lively debate at the British Library on 15 May about whether the 'right' maths is being taught in schools.
More than 100 people attended the event which brought together a panel of educational experts to discuss whether the 'right' maths is being taught in schools today and how we can ensure that students get a ‘proper’ maths education at the right age.
The event saw an animated debate between British mathematician Tony Gardiner, and Founder of computerbasedmath.org Conrad Wolfram, on whether technology is changing maths for the better.
Other speakers included: Lynne McClure, NRICH; Lynn Churchman, National Numeracy; Jennie Golding, ACME; Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessment; Charlie Stripp, MEI and NCETM; Mark McCourt, Teacher Development Trust and Beluga Learning; and Janet De Wilde, Higher Education Academy.
