The event is being held on a Saturday to avoid problems with cover.   It is priced so that schools can afford to send two members of staff (about half the price of a typical LA course) - staff who enjoy the day’s training together, and are more likely to discuss and implement what they have experienced on their return to school.

The cost of the day is £70 for members of The Mathematical Association, £95 to non-members who will receive a £25 voucher redeemable against membership. All members of a school with Institutional Membership are entitled to come at the members’ price. These prices are for booking direct with The Mathematical Association – contact . Publications from The Mathematical Association will be on sale on the day.

We provide a lovely lunch and refreshments and do everything possible to make it a great day out for those who attend.

The feedback on last year’s sessions was excellent.  Please do consider sending at least one member of staff, as it is rare to have so many experts in the field of primary mathematics together for the day.  It really is an opportunity not to be missed!  Event details and application form can be downloaded from our One-day Events page at

Once we have received your reservation we will be in touch nearer the time with more detailed directions and the finalised schedule for the day.
