The Symbols and the Symbolised

Title The Symbols and the Symbolised

Abstract:  We can be lured into thinking that the symbols we use in mathematics are the mathematics itself. During the session we will explore ways in which learners might be given some control over symbolising these situations themselves.  Pete Griffin is Assistant Director in the Secondary Team at NCETM and has had a varied career in teaching, advisory work and higher education. He is well known for his engaging CPD session
