12-13 July 2012. CETL-MSOR Conference 2012: Sharing Good Practice in MSOR Teaching and Learning
Halifax Conference Facility, Endcliffe Village, University of Sheffield
The aim of this conference is to promote, explore and disseminate emerging good practice and research findings in Mathematics and Statistics support, teaching, learning and assessment. In particular it will provide an opportunity to share experiences from the wide variety of activities supported by the National HE STEM Programme through the Mathematical Science HE Curriculum programme and sigma. The conference will appeal to all those teaching Mathematics, Statistics or Numeracy, whether this is to specialist mathematics students or students studying components of mathematics within their degree programmes (such as bioscience, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, nursing, physics, psychology, social work, etc).
20th July 2012: Pearson Think Tank: “Rational Numbers: Investigating compulsion for mathematics study to 18”
at the London Mathematical Society, 10am – 12.
Rational Numbers is the final report of a research project investigating the implications of mathematics being made compulsory to 18. The research questioned the research evidence basis on which the calls for increased mathematics participation at Level 3 is based before running focus groups with 16-18 learners and online polls of practitioners in colleges. The report then looks at ways we might increase mathematics participation post-16 including consideration of the way we define ‘participation’.
