The Easter Conference is an annual highlight of ATM’s programme of professional development events and is taking place on the 10 - 13 April 2017 at the *Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon. The theme this year is 'Mathematical Learning Journeys'.
The conference offers members an invaluable opportunity to explore new ideas and make social and professional connections in a stimulating and challenging environment that encourages face-to-face sharing and learning.
Learn first-hand about the latest developments in mathematics education and be inspired by the wide range of sessions available
I found the conference to be a valuable source of ideas that I can implement in the classroom. I was able to engage in some fabulous discussions that will further direct my teaching. I cannot wait for next year!.
