THE YOUNG MATHEMATICAL STORY AUTHOR (YMSA) COMPETITION WILL OPEN FOR ENTRY NEXT MONTH

The Young Mathematical Story Author (YMSA) competition will open for entry on Monday 7th January 2019. We very much look forward to receiving many mathematical story picture books from students aged 8-13 years old around the world! (Remember the submission deadline is Friday 29th March 2019.) 

If you teach students of the aforementioned age range, please remember to encourage them to submit their mathematical story picture book! :- ) More details of the submission process can be found here.

 

LESSON IDEAS

Below is a round up of story-inspired mathematics lessons ideas from this year! Be inspired by reading other teachers sharing their experience of using stories in their mathematics teaching.

Would you like to share your experience and lesson ideas too? We are looking for teacher volunteers to join our small, but growing, team of On-Line Contributors!

MATHS THROUGH STORIES
THE NATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMME

In this academic year alone, Dr. Trakulphadetkrai (founder of MathsThroughStories.org) will be delivering the Maths Through Stories training workshop to over 100 in-service teachers and 1,600 teacher trainees across the UK and abroad.

Consequently, MathsThroughStories.org has now officially become the largest and most trusted training provider on integrating story picture books in mathematics teaching and learning. 


Details of Dr. Trakulphadetkrai's other upcoming workshops can be found here

If your school, local educational authority or teacher education programme (both within or outside the UK) is interested in receiving training from Dr. Trakulphadetkrai at your institution, please get in touch with him directly here.
