Wow is the first word that comes to mind to summarise #MathsConf4, which was held in the beautiful and amazing venue of the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. This is my second maths conference event and I came away feeling reinvigorated and truly inspired.

However to me this is the sign of an 'outstanding' conference, when it is hard to make a decision on workshops because they all look amazing.

Poor numeracy skills have been estimated to cost the government £2.4 billion each year, however the current government has only invest £89 million into the national numeracy crisis. This may seem like a significant chunk of money, but when compared to the £5 billion invested into literacy education this hardly seems proportionate.

  • Algebra
