This one-day conference has been organised jointly by the AMSP and the West Midlands Maths Hubs and will showcase current, outstanding professional development opportunities for teachers of mathematics in our communities

Lunch and refreshment will be provided


The conference will consist of a keynote talk from Ben Sparks on "The Creation of Number" and a variety of workshops for delegates to engage with.

Ben is a mathematician, musician, and public speaker. He gives maths talks and workshops around the world, to students, teachers, and the general public. He’s part freelance and part time with the Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP), and he’s based at the University of Bath, where he teaches on the Maths Communication undergraduate module. His performances include regular work with the Numberphile YouTube channel (run by Brady Haran) where his videos have been watched over 16 million times. He also runs his own YouTube channel SparksMaths.

Ben's talk on the creation of number is an entertaining journey through humanity’s mathematical attempts to wrestle with the deepest questions behind our day-to-day use of numbers, and their consequences.

The available workshops are being delivered by members of the Maths Hubs and AMSP teams, set around some of the work they have engaged with this year. The details of these workshops are listed below in the Student Schedule section. You will be asked to select your workshop choices after you have completed the initial registration form.
