Enriching your classroom

James Morris and Cath Moore

15:00-16:00, Thursday 30 June

Session description

James and Cath will be looking at why and how you can enrich the mathematics that your students meet. Even with a packed curriculum, there are ways of building opportunities for engaging and exciting your classes about mathematics! The focus is on 11-16 students, though it is possible that some ideas can be translated to other age groups. And there will be the chance to do some maths!

The session is designed for teachers of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students. It will be helpful if participants bring something to write with, calculators are not needed in this session.
