Teaching school course
The Wroxham School, Potters Bar
The Making Maths Meaningful Project ran during the academic year 2012-13. It was an opportunity for teachers to consider how Carol Dweck’s ‘growth mindset’ can affect what goes on in the maths classroom.
Each morning session began with some maths input from the NRICH team, which was then used as the basis for a discussion about classroom practice and an opportunity to plan a small intervention back at school. By meeting each half term we built on our previous work together.

NRICH hopes to run a course for NQTs in the spring/summer terms of 2014 at The Wroxham School. This is likely to comprise two linked half-day sessions. As soon as details are confirmed, they will be posted here.
