The second Maths4Life national conference will be held on the 7th of February 2006 in Central London

The conference will focus on all aspects of effective practice in teaching and learning maths and numeracy.

It aims to:

  • showcase an approach to active learning based on the work of Susan Wall and Malcolm Swan
  • bring to a wider audience the findings of the Maths4Life Pathfinder projects
  • make available reports produced during the first year of the project
  • bring together the wider maths and numeracy community to look at policy and practice in an active way

Delegates will take part in active learning sessions and workshops, will see exhibits from a wide range of commercial providers, and will be invited to join others in interactive table exhibitions. The format of the day will enable you to actively learn about the exciting things happening in Maths4Life.
