After the researchEd in Rugby on 9th June 2018, Jemma Sherwood (@jemmaths) and I sat down to share our thoughts and takeaways on the sessions we had seen. We discussed when it is best to introduce algebra, things we have not borrowed from higher performing regions, knowledge organisers, marking, getting carried away with research, and much more!

Welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast
This is another of my Conference Takeaways episodes, where I sit down with a fellow conference delegate to reflect on what we have learned from the day for the benefit of people who were unable to attend the conference. This time the event was researchEd Rugby, and my co-host was the wonderful Jemma Sherwood (@jemmaths).
We discussed the following things, and much more besides:
- How does Jemma use the key principles from the Learning Scientists?
- When should you teach algebra?
- Are knowledge organisers effective in maths?
- Can we get rid of all marking?
- Can you get too carried away with research?
- What has the UK not borrowed from higher performing regions?
- How should we help our students organise knowledge?
