The MA is an accredited NCETM mathematics CPD provider.
7 November 2015
Saturday, 7th November 2015 10am to 4pm
Wycombe High School, Buckinghamshire HP11 1TB
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 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.
Workshops will be repeated throughout the day with four at each session
We reserve the right to change the programme - there may be more session leaders!
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.
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!
