The Power of Maths Roundtables
At Pearson, we’re committed to empowering confidence and success in maths. Our Power of Maths Roundtable series brings together leading influencers across education, maths and business to discuss and unlock contemporary issues facing mathematics in Britain today.
Our next Roundtable in July 2019 will explore how we can eradicate maths anxiety from homes, classrooms and workplaces across the UK.
Facilitating the search for solutions, television presenter, maths teacher and author, Bobby Seagull , will chair the free event alongside expert speakers, including leading academic Sue Johnston-Wilder from the University of Warwick, Nike Folayan, CEO of Association of Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers (AFBE-UK), Rob Brown, maths teacher at West-Lakes Academy and Janet Baker, doctoral researcher leading interventions into mathematics anxiety.

Changing Britain's Perceptions to Maths
Our first The Power of Maths Roundtable report draws upon the insights gathered at the inaugural Roundtable in late 2018, where practitioners and academics joined school, business and third sector leaders to explore how we can collectively transform perceptions of maths both inside and outside the classroom.
The Roundtable conversation showed that maths cannot be separated from the people who teach, learn and use it. It is a human practice. It’s important that we reflect on the recommendations that came out of the discussion and take concrete steps towards effecting changes that will benefit teachers and young people today, and change how maths is used and perceived in future.
