Mixed Attainment Mathematics Conference
Time: 10.00 AM to 4.00 PM
Venue: Charles Street Building, City Campus, Sheffield S1 1WB
On the 17th June 2017 we are holding the second mixed attainment mathematics conference, for secondary school teachers of mathematics who are keen to develop ways of working with mixed-attainment groups.
The aim of those organising the conference is to help form a community of teachers who share a common belief in social justice and the value of not separating children into groups according to some notion of their (fixed) ‘ability.’
Workshops will be organised by people who are currently teaching, or who have taught mathematics in mixed-attainment classrooms from KS3 to KS4. The intention is to share practices through active participation regarding strategies, ideas and resources for teaching in mixed-attainment classrooms.
The conference is being organised and supported by Helen Hindle, Zeb Friedman, Tom Francome, Andrew Blair, Mike Ollerton, Hilary Povey, Leann de Belder, Sam Hoggard and Mark Horley, and there will be further people to add to this list in the near future.
The first mixed-attainment mathematics teaching conference took place at the University of Birmingham in January 2017.
