AMET runs a range of events, including joint conferences with NAMA and online webinars. Details of future events will be posted here.
Mathematical Futures: a new approach to mathematics and data education – Catherine Boulton
The Royal Society is investigating the mathematical competencies young people may need in the future, and the implications for education. Their discussion paper here makes a case for a new approach that will improve education for everyone, at all levels of need. Successful implementation will depend on collaboration between many stakeholders, and teacher education (at every key stage) is an important part of the planning and preparation. This webinar shares the ideas in the discussion paper, and seeks teacher educator feedback.
Catherine leads education policy work on mathematics and computing at the Royal Society. Prior to this she had been involved in educational publishing and a charity think tank before developing professional development programmes for teachers.
The recording from this webinar is available here:
UCL's Centre for Climate Change and Sustainability Education are developing a set of professional development modules for primary and secondary mathematics teachers. This webinar is an opportunity to get valuable feedback from colleagues to further shape the development of the mathematics modules. The webinar will begin with an overview, sharing the work already developed by the Centre, followed by break out groups to enable Nasreen and Suman to get your feedback on the ideas they are developing for the modules. They will wrap up with a joint plenary to gather final thoughts from all participants.
Dr Nasreen Majid (Primary) and Dr Suman Ghosh (Secondary) have many years’ experience as classroom teachers and teacher educators, and both are now based in the IoE at UCL.
Wednesday 24th January 16:00 - 17:00 on Zoom
Members will be sent a Zoom link. Non-members book through Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/climate-change-and-sustainability-education-cpd-resources-amet-webinar-tickets-743242667827?aff=oddtdtcreator
AMET, ATM, MA, NAMA and NANAMIC worked together in order to provide a joint conference of mathematics subject associations for our members in 2023.
The theme was Finding the Common Factors.
Date: Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th April, 2023
Venue: Warwick University
Since our first webinar in July 2020, we have gone on to run a series of these. They have generally been quite popular, giving colleagues some quick CPD and a chance to connect with others (virtually). We are interested in hearing your ideas for future webinars. Please get in touch!
During her webinar Balbir Kaur set up a Jamboard for us to share ideas about social justice and decolonising the mathematics curriculum in ITE. Please continue to contribute your ideas.
Thank you to all who joined our vitual conference in March. Remember that the recordings are still available on the conference website for those who attended.
Rosa Archer and Sally Bamber presented about Mastery in Mathematics Education at the 2021 ATM Conference. Their presentation is available here.
Remember people who attended the conference can still access all the session videos through the conference website.
