Meetings venue

Unless indicated otherwise, our meetings are held at the University of Durham School of Education Hild and St Bede room ED130 at 19:30-21:00. Students would be most welcome as would everyone in the magical mathematical universe!


Due to additional security precautions at the Education Building at Durham, I need to know if you intend to come to a meeting as there is a passcode in operation on the entrance doors of the building.


Previous meetings

Wednesday 1st June 2016 - Stretch and Challenge in Mathematics

All sessions are in ED130 between 7.30pm and 9.00pm.

Wednesday 3rd February 2016 - 19:30 to 21:00  

There will be a discussion and sharing of resources and stories relating to Problem solving and Reasoning in maths lessons.  Bring along any ideas to share and you will take away many in return.  All are welcome to share their ideas or just take away some of ours and hopefully spread the news!  Remember our meetings are quite unique in that the topic of discussion is often focused on what members bring that they need support on and the key element/theme is often changed on the night to help and aid/support colleagues in their teaching - free focused CPD, what is more useful than that!!!!

Due to increased security at the University, there will be a key code in operation so if you let Calvin Giles know that you will try to attend, he will send you the pass code for the door leading into the School Of Education main reception.


Wednesday 1st July 19:30  - Challenge and Differentiation and the problems this gives us with planning!

Lets have a think at what works best and share these in readiness for September and our new classes.

I have set up a new facebook page for colleagues to share ideas with like minded people, https://www.facebook.com/durhamATM so friends may share thoughts and inspirational ideas!
