maths scholars scheme needs you

Will you become a Maths Scholar in 2015?

We’ve been delighted to support so many talented maths teachers as they begin their training and teaching careers.

We were heartened to see so much fuss being made on World Teachers Day at the beginning of October. It does seem that the community at large is really beginning to see just how valuable teaching is to the economy and well-being of a country.

This year we have been doing our best to spread the word about the importance of teaching maths and also the necessity of bringing in passionate maths teachers to really fire up students to embrace the subject and throw away some ill-conceived perceptions

Our Twitter community is modest but perfectly formed and it’s exciting to be part of such a passionate, imaginative, creative and inspirational group of people. We have been heartened to see more NQTs contacting the community for help and advice as they develop their professional practice and ethos.

In fact throughout the year the Maths Scholars Scheme organise different events

We love to get new scholars to meet up and also start working together on ideas that can be taken back to the classroom. We have found some amazingly creative groups flourishing from just these beginnings. Next meeting is 21st November 2015. More details to follow.

In 2015/16 academic year we are hoping to start publishing

We’d love to publish some of your ideas and would like to showcase scholars’ work whenever we can. In addition we will continue to showcase good practice, exciting new maths publications and be part of the maths teaching platform. If you’d like to send us a blog post and we like it we’ll publish. It could be yet another extra to add to your list of accomplishments.

If you’d like to be featured on the website or you’d like to share some of your observations, resources, opinions or ideas do contact us here and take the conversation forward.
