Date: 
Thursday, 26 June 2014 - 9:30am to 3:30pm

A free event for innovative teachers of mathematics at Key Stages 2, 3, and 4 who are interested in offering creative opportunities to their students.

Creative thinking and imagination are central to being an outstanding mathematician - famously, one of the 20th century's most celebrated mathematical writers, G.H. Hardy, described mathematicians as being like poets and painters, and mathematics as a creative art. Mathematics involves spotting patterns, making connections, finding new ways of looking at things and being inspired to apply what you already know in new contexts. It involves playing around with ideas, having the courage to experiment and asking new questions.

This full-day event, run by the NRICH team, will focus on ideas for promoting mathematical creativity and developing mathematical thinking. The day will involve a mixture of plenary sessions and smaller group workshops. It will be highly interactive and will offer opportunities to work in and across key phases.

For further details please see the event page on our NRICH website.
