The MEI (Mathematics, Education, Innovation) conference took place on the 30th June and 1st July 2022 at the University of Keele. The event was an opportunity for maths teachers and enthusiasts at all stages of their careers to share, explore, discuss and evaluate ideas for the classroom.
The workshops covered a wide variety of topics and sessions were led by experienced teachers and subject experts from many areas of the mathematical world like Michael Barany (Maths historian), Rob Eastaway (Maths communicator) and Jo Morgan (Resourceaholic blog).
I had the pleasure of being one of the conference plenary speakers and I spoke about ‘Numeracy in the UK and the Importance of Maths Teachers’ to a great crowd of thoughtful and caring maths teachers and educators. My aim was to provoke thought and to encourage discussion and many discussions were had and I hope many more continue!
