2017 ATM Conference: Opening and Closing Plenary Abstracts Now Available

Opening Plenary  - Jenny Cane

Opening Plenary -Transforming Mathematics Learning through Cuisenaire Rods

Caleb Gattegno, ATM founder, proposed that learners experience structure and relationships through actions and operations with coloured rods. This is a physical experience that leads to virtual actions and mental images, thence to recording with formal systems of symbols. This approach embodies Gattegno’s belief in algebra before arithmetic.

In this plenary I will explain how we are integrating Gattegno’s approach to early algebra in our school. I will explain how we have been able to put algebra at the heart of KS1 to develop children’s mathematical understanding and confidence. I will share some of the exciting work that children have completed and illustrate how Gattegno’s Numbers in Colour textbooks have inspired our lessons and invigorated our approach to teaching across the school. I will describe how we are working with other schools in the Tizard network on the largest systematic study of Gattegno’s approach to learning mathematics since the 1960s.


Closing Plenary - Adrian Pinel

 Closing Plenary - Mathematics Problems met on my Mathematical Journey

A number of mathematics problems have become important to my work as a mathematics educator, and some were turning points in my professional journey. I would like to share some of these problems with you and link them to my own fifty year journey within ATM. I trust that my chosen problems will be both engaging and useful to you, so that this will become much more than a retrospective. I acknowledge the positive ethos of ATM, and the influence of many ATM members without whose creative and distinctive ideas I would not have thrived
