I chat with Emeritus Professor Jere Confrey who is an expert in Mathematics Education.

We discuss a range of topics including:

The current situation in schools with COVID
Why learning trajectories should be viewed like climbing a wall not a ladder
Tracking/streaming in schools versus flexible learning
Why students need to believe they can learn
We teach maths the wrong way around: division should come before multiplication
Different ways of thinking and how that can transfer and generalise
The next generation will need to be flexible, confident thinkers
