Maths - In the spotlight
On the right track
The National Railway Museum in York will host Putting Mathematics on the Right Track! on 15 June - a day-long conference full of inspirational ideas to take back to the classroom.
What is it?
Led by maths educators Steve Lomax, Douglas Butler and TES maths adviser Craig Barton, the day will be divided into three, 70-minute workshops focusing on the latest and most imaginative methods of teaching maths: numbers and algebra; shape, space and measures; and data handling and statistics.
How to enrol
