Proportional reasoning in the new GCSE with Mel Muldowney from Just Maths @JustMaths

Most of us dread those questions that involve a number of builders building a wall and having to work out the number required if one of the variables is to change. It’s a tricky concept to teach.

This session will look at some ideas that Mel has brought together into a series of lessons … oh and she promises not to rant!


Mel is currently Associate Leader in Maths at Alcester Academy, having moved, with her “partner in crime”, Seager, from their previous school which prior to their departure was “Most Improved School” in England. Since joining Alcester the school has been recognised as one of the “Top 100” non-selective state school in England the Maths department was recently awarded TES “Maths team of the year”.

She is also one third of the JustMaths team that brings you www.justmaths.co.uk where she happens to write a little blog!


Learning from the past with Emma Bell from Franklin College, Grimsby, (@El_Timbre)

Emma has a few "obsessions". Along with a more than passing liking for a certain Doctor, Emma collects old maths and teaching texts. Lots of them. In this session, Emma will show you maths teaching ideas and resources from the past 2000 or so years, and show how we could use them in a classroom today. You can learn more about Emma HERE.


Nikki from Markit !!: Errors need to welcomed 

Great exam technique and understanding comes from being well informed about where things can go wrong. This is often  silly mistakes or just not knowing what to do. I will share our insights on everything I have learnt about how students perceive feedback when mistakes are pointed out. What can we do to make mistakes empowering.
