South West Maths Conference: South West Maths Conference: Tuesday 11 October 2016 | Exeter Racecourse | Devon

Mathematics is about more than solutions. Exploring alternative approaches and discussing why one is more elegant than another is a key aspect of developing fluency, reasoning and problem-solving; elegant solutions are built on understanding of structure and relationships, key components of mathematics. Elegant solutions are also essential to school development.

This conference provides an opportunity for teachers to consider the place of elegant solutions both in the classroom and in terms of solutions to current issues in mathematics education. We bring together renowned national and local speakers to explore the theme. The day includes sessions by internationally renowned keynote speaker Mike Askew, two workshop sessions and a creative plenary.
