Supporting Low Attaining Students - Equals Online
Summary: Equals online is a free magazine, published by the MA, designed to support and inspire practitioners that work with students who find learning mathematics challenging. From early years to further education, the team at Equals aim to offer ideas, resources and start conversations that improves provision for most vulnerable learners. Our session will offer ideas and resources that you can take back into your classroom and provide an opportunity to discuss and share how best to support your students.

Presenters: Alan Edmiston is the current editor of Equals. He has taught both maths and science across Key Stages 1 - 4 and has been supporting schools for 20 years with CAME and CASE (Cognitive Acceleration through Maths and Science). Most recently he has been developing a resource pack, which he will be sharing in his session, with three different maths Hubs that will provide teachers with activities they can use to get a sense of how their SEND pupils look at the world. These activities can therefore be used to help them make professional decisions to support the learning of the weakest pupils at Key Stage 3.
