6th Annual Symposium on Research in Mathematics and Education

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

4BME Maths Symposium Group
 
 
The final year students of the BA Mathematics and Education (BME) hosted their Final Year Symposium: Research in Mathematics and Education, on April 11, 2017.
 
The Keynote speaker was Dr Terry Maguire ( @TerrymagNF ), Director of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning  in Higher Education and founder of ‘Maths Eyes’.  Dr Maguire gave an inspiring presentation on the value of engaging all learners with Mathematics in a relevant and constructive way that enables deeper understanding of both mathematical concepts and their applications.
 
The Final Year BME students shared their classroom based practitioner research projects in Mathematics Teaching and Learning  through a poster exhibition and presentations from the group.  Also contributing to the symposium poster exhibit and presentations were students from the B.Sc. Design Technology Education programme in GMIT Letterfrack.
 
Many thanks to all the 4BME Group and their Module leader Dr Paul Flynn ( @FlynnDPaul ) who organised a very successful and inspirational morning for all educators present: teachers, fellow students and their lecturers from NUI Galway and GMIT.
