Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.

This is another Conference Takeaways podcast, this time from the online MathsConf23 that took place in June 2020. I am reunited my regular Conference Takeaways co-host Jo Morgan (@mathsjem on Twitter and the creator of the online bible of maths resources, resourceaholic.com) to share our key thoughts and takeaways from the selection of workshops we were lucky to see.

We discuss the following things, and much more besides:

  • The pros and cons of online CPD
  • The wonderful work of the late, great Don Steward
  • Magical maths
  • Behaving mathematically
  • Vectors
  • Teaching the what before the why
  • Surprising practice
  • Exact trig values
  • Misconceptions in angles

An extended version of my session – Misconceptions in Maths: Angles – can be found here craigbarton.podia.com

As this was an online conference, the sessions will be available to view. I will link to it here once these are live.

I really hope you find this discussion useful, whether you attended the conference or not. Thanks so much for Jo for taking the time to talk to me.
