What does 'mastery learning' mean?
What are the implications for teaching primary mathematics?
This one day workshop is aimed at teachers. The day will be facilitated by renowned Professor Mike Askew. Mike's primary aim is to make mathematical activities engaging and enjoyable for all learners, and thus more understandable for all. Throughout the day, the emphasis will be on the practical implications for classrooms, implications that are firmly grounded in research.
Mike Askew is Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Witswatersrand, Johannesburg, having previously held Professorships at Monash University, Melbourne and King’s College, London. After teaching in primary schools in and around London, Mike moved into teacher education and developed his interest in research. He has directed many research projects including the influential 'Effective Teachers of Numeracy in Primary Schools' and was deputy director of the five-year Leverhulme Numeracy Research Programme, examining teaching, learning and progression of students from age 5 to 11. Mike’s research has been widely published both in the academic press and as books and resources for teachers, including Transforming Primary Mathematics and A Practical Guide to Transforming Primary Mathematics (both published by Routledge).
£80 per person, includes lunch and refreshments.
