Do you work in pre- or in-service teacher education? Does your interest lie with mathematics? If you would like the opportunity to share your practice and learn what others are doing then join us. You will also periodically receive email updates that will include reference to current developments and initiatives in mathematics education.
We are the voice for mathematics teacher education in the UK. AMET is represented on the Joint Mathematical Council. Your joining us will increase our strength as representatives of the majority of those working in mathematics teacher education.
What have you read that has had the most impact on your training to become a mathematics teacher?
Novices to teaching learn from a variety of sources, including books, articles, websites and blogs. We want to know what this year's graduating ITE students read that had the most impact on the mathematics teacher that they have become. Why did it have an impact? Was it most relevant to the early days of stepping into the classroom or has it had a longer influence?
We invite these graduating students to review the written material that had the most influence on them, and to provide reflection points or tasks for a new reader to engage with, to help them get the most from their reading. The submission should be no more than 500 words. There are three categories: Early Years, Primary and Secondary.
Prizes: £50 for the winner of each category, and £25 for the runner up. Your review will be included on the NASBTT and AMET websites, and the websites of other teacher education providers at their discretion.
Task: Write a review of written material that has had the most impact on your teaching including points for reflection
Format: Word document or equivalent, 500 words maximum, no specific presentation style required
Deadline: 5:00pm 16th July 2021
Submission: MathsReview@ametonline.org.uk You must make clear the category to which you’re submitting
Who can enter: Anyone who has completed their teacher training in the academic year 2020/21
Notification: You will be notified if you have been awarded a prize by 1st September 2021 at the latest.
