The Holiday Inn, Kensington, London

Dr Steve Chinn (UK)

Conference theme:
To highlight international innovations in mathematics education that have improved performance for the bottom quartile of math achievers, as well as innovations for higher achievers that have also had impact on that bottom quartile. Pragmatic research used to inform teaching.

Two countries that consistently perform well in mathematics education are Singapore and the Netherlands. This conference brings in speakers from those countries and two UK experts to give a new perspective on how to address the mathematics learning difficulties of our lowest achievers.

The conference ran very successfully with impressive ratings in the evaluations.
Comments included: ‘Inspiring- great to have classroom perspectives’ ‘understanding “where dyscalculia is” from the sources rather than just through reading’, ‘very enjoyable and thought-provoking’, ‘fascinating conference’.


The 2nd International Conference will be held in London in 2014. Please watch the website for details.
