This year is a plan-as-you-go year. But we have various exciting things being cooked up, so please bear with us. Next up for December is Kate Gladstone Smith who will share another of the wonderful Langdon Park maths modules. When it finally gets published and you can all buy into it, this will revolutionise maths teaching ...
Then, with great excitement, we have a January (27th) session from Charlie Gilderdale of NRich to do what only Charlie can. Get some really deep thinking going ...
Saturday 9th December 10:00 to 12:30

Kate Gladstone-Smith: Geometric Reasoning at KS3
If you are concerned about getting your students to grade 5 or indeed grade 9, then you will know that getting them reasoning as early as possible is the answer. Kate, Paul and the team at Langdon Park have been working for some years now at getting students thinking, speaking and reasoning mathematically from the start of key stage 3. Come and try out materials from their Geometric Reasoning module and take home wonderful activities to try with your students.
Give your brain a good Saturday morning workout and go back refreshed with some great new ideas for your school.

Welcome to London Maths
This is the web site for the London Branch of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics London Branch working with the Mathematical Association London Branch, meeting at The Institute of Education, University College London (The IoE!).
We have a programme of 5 Saturday morning workshop style CPD sessions for London Teachers from 10:00 to 12:30 and a full day conference.
Click the 'programme' button for full details.
You will find the full programme of events for this year and supporting materials. There is a back catalogue of materials form past events. These are all free to use, so please explore.
There is also a page for discussions about the sessions and indeed about issues of interest to all teachers of mathematics.
We have decided to bring in guest speakers this year, so we have increased the fees, we hope you will agree it is still very good value for your INSET money! The cost for the five Saturday sessions will be a minimal £20 for a whole department, £10 for individuals and free for teachers in training, with doughnuts included! We really hope that this year we will see attendances like last year or better, so please, tell your friends and come along yourself. Whole departments are very welcome. There is no need to book, you can just come along, but it is very helpful if you email the branch secretary in advance so you are expected.
Use the contact form to send us your details and we will mail you details of all events and keep you updated.
