Get to know the new Maths and its Learning curriculum

< Back to Event

The Maths Education Team have been incredibly busy over the past couple of years writing two new modules: Learning and Doing Geometry and Learning and Doing Algebra. These modules, along with Mathematical Thinking in Schools, help students understand the principles and differences in how people learn, how to encourage geometric and algebraic thinking and the difficulties learners of mathematics come across – either at school or beyond!

Presentation time: 
Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 12:00
