The 3 'I's of Primary Maths: Interactive, Investigative, Inclusive: Primary Maths Conference

Event code SCH 22/610 

This year’s conference will focus on the key ingredients of successful mathematics teaching and learning. For our pupils to achieve their full potential, they need to: interact with mathematical structures and concepts using a hands-on approach; develop an investigative, exploratory mind to grow their resilience and perseverance; and, be supported as learners through scaffolding or stretching.

Debbie Morgan – Director of NCETM
Debbie Morgan has a passion for mathematics and has significant expertise in the primary phase. She has taught every age range from Foundation to Year 6 and been a Headteacher. Subsequently she worked as a mathematics adviser for a local authority and has been involved in initial teacher education at Northampton University where she was a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education. She was Programme Director of a large Mathematics Specialist Teacher (MaST) programme across six universities and nineteen local authorities. Through her MaST programme many teachers have been inspired and are providing exciting teaching and learning experiences in their schools. She took up the post of Director for Primary Mathematics at the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) in September 2012. Her responsibilities include providing advice and expertise to the Department for Education to support the development of policy and leads on National programmes. In January 2015 she successfully completed a Doctorate on the development of teachers' mathematics subject knowledge. She has recently worked on a children's TV programme as the maths consultant. The programme is called Numberblocks and is on the CBeebies channel. She is regularly invited as a key note speaker at conferences. On 10 October 2020 she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's birthday honours for services to Education

Karen Wilding – Founder of EY Maths
Karen started life, like so many do, hating maths and failing at every stage. It was only in her thirties, as the result of attending some great training as a teacher herself, that she realised it wasn't maths, or her, it was the way she had been taught.
Since this life-changing revelation (no exaggeration), she's passionately pursued a quest to build her own maths subject knowledge, teach maths in ways that are meaningful and connected, research how the brain learns and makes sense of this amazing subject and pass this knowledge on to others.

Amanda Keen - Dyscalculia specialist teacher and assessor
Having qualified as a teacher in 1995, Amanda spent 17 years teaching across the whole of the primary age range (Early Years to Year 6). She then worked in Learning Support across Key Stages 1 to 4 in both independent and special schools, before retraining as a specialist dyscalculia teacher and assessor. Amanda now tutors internationally via remote learning platforms and is an online assessor for dyscalculia. She has spoken at several conferences and led a number of webinars, and is currently a Maths Hub lead for an SEND work group.
