IMA International Conference on
Barriers and Enablers to Learning Maths:
Enhancing Learning and Teaching for All Learners
10 – 12 June 2015
University of Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland
This is the first international conference of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) about approaches to teaching and learning mathematics. Mathematics here covers all aspects, including number, pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and the full range of applications of mathematics.
The conference examines learning and teaching throughout the life span, from the most basic to the most advanced topics and for the full range of learners, including people with dyscalculia and other maths learning difficulties, gifted learners and mathematicians. The conference is also highly interdisciplinary. In addition to mathematicians, it should be of interest amongst others to psychologists, teachers, pedagogical and educational experts, engineers, scientists, linguists and social scientists.
The conference is organised into the following four tracks:
- Motivation and maths anxiety:
- Inclusive practice and learners' particular requirements
- Effective practice: what does and does not work
- The use of technology
On request the deadline has been extended to Monday 8 December. Please send 1-2 page abstracts to email@example.com
The following special thematic sessions are also still open for contributions:
Inclusive approaches to learning and teaching maths: including pedagogical and theoretical issues, case studies and practical examples and the impact of factors such as gender, culture and disability.
