Bring industry and student interest to maths

Summary

Is it possible to combine both future careers and student interest while teaching the maths curriculum? It can be a challenge to continue to create new, authentic, motivating and relevant problems for students. Can we be fresh and relevant for students and answer the age old question of ‘why do I need to learn this?’ in maths?
This workshop combines Adam’s extensive teaching experience, in particular how to incorporate student’s interests, with Felicity’s professional engineering background and understanding of the skills of the future, to show how maths can be brought to life for your students.
In the workshop you will
• Gain an industry perspective of maths and engineering
• See how you can bring the real world and student’s worlds into maths
• Create your own lessons applying this framework
• Walk away with fresh ideas and perspectives to engage and hook your students
