Time: 7pm

Venue: Exeter Maths School, Rougemont House, Castle Street, Exeter, EX4 3PU

Presenter: Pete Griffin, Assistant Director (Maths Hubs), National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics.

Title: Sequences vs Functions; Skip counting vs Multiplication; “Oh, I get it” vs “Ah, I see”; Patterns vs Structure

Stimulated by an article from MT247 (the ATM journal) by Anne Watson on the role of sequences in the National Curriculum, this session will explore a range of mathematical situations where an emphasis on structure can produce deep mathematical thinking. Pete will also invite you to discuss the teaching implications of this.

Refreshments will be available from 6:30pm
