MathsCraft - Doing maths like a research mathematician

Enabling your students to work in a way that is similar to the way a research mathematician works can dramatically change the classroom experience, for the better. Would you like to find out how, for example, a topic like Pythagoras' Theorem could be approached a little differently?

This immersive professional development event will give you more information about the MathsCraft program, and equip you to run MathsCraft problem sessions for your own class as well as for schools in your local area.
