I have been fortunate enough to attend a number of TeachMeet events over the past few years and have benefitted greatly from the presentations and discussion had at them.
Whilst completing my NQT year I hosted #TMSurrey at my previous school and then later attended the event the next year.
This year I have been asked, by our Assistant Headteacher to organise and run a Mathematics focused TeachMeet at our school. So I am!
The Mathematics focused TeachMeet or #MathsMeet will take place on Thursday 20th October 2016 between 4:15 and 6pm at Oakwood School, Horley, Surrey, RH6 9AE.
We're right by Gatwick Airport and down the road from Horley train station, which is just one stop away from Gatwick Airport on the Southern Line. We have a large staff car park too for those who will be driving - plenty of space available!
There will be refreshments available (tea/coffee and biscuits) from 4:15pm with presentations starting from 4:30pm. There will be a raffle on the evening with some great prizes (Numeracy Ninjas goodies, books, wine, chocolates, Magic Whiteboard goodies, plus more to come) already being provided by some very generous friends via Twitter. Thank You!
Presentations so far include (in no particular order):
Jo Morgan @mathsjem - 'Five maths websites you need to know about'
Mark Horley (@mhorley) - 'The power of boxes and circles'
Ryan Foster - 'WAGOLLs and WABOLLs'
Paul Collins (@mrprcollins - me) - 'Engaging Students with Book Work/Worksheets (Codebreakers)'
Will Emeny (@Maths_Master and creator of 'Numeracy Ninjas') (via video) - 'Forgetting Curve Homeworks'
Michelle Mahoney (@Mahoney_Maths) - 'Assessment & homework without levels'
Paul Collins (@mrprcollins - me) - 'Numeracy Ninjas at Oakwood School'
All the presentations have a focus on the teaching and learning of Mathematics. The event should be great too to network and share good practice/ideas.
On arrival there will be puzzles and activities for all to complete on tables with some resources I really like put out for others to take away and use.
With just 10 days to go there are still places to attend and a few spots left to present so if you'd like to come along just e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for looking and I hope to see you there!
