Summary:      ‘Practice makes perfect’ – well it is not that simple; yet students do need to practise skills within each topic they learn – developing fluency with various techniques is an important part of mathematics education, as is connecting together different parts of the curriculum. This will be an active session in which we will offer some opportunities to engage with activities where the practice is used as a tool to explore, notice, generalise and justify; developing the mathematician as well as the mathematics.  It will be suitable to teachers of KS 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Venue:           School of Education, University of Birmingham, Room G39 (Ground floor)
