Mathematics lecture series for teachers at the Bridge Academy
Running February – May 2012, this series is aimed at teachers of mathematics who are interested in exploring and expanding their knowledge across a variety of mathematical topics. Lectures are delivered by academic staff from Queen Mary, University of London and hosted at the Bridge Academy. These free events will also offer an opportunity for networking with other teachers and refreshments will be provided. Please note that there is no limit to the number of teachers attending from each school and you do not have to attend all in the series.
For full details of the topics and dates please download the flyer [PDF].
The Goldsmiths' Company Science for Society Mathematics Course
The 5-day residential course is held on the Queen Mary Mile End campus. It begins on a Sunday evening in late July and ends after lunch on the following Friday. Accommodation is provided in the new Queen Mary student village. Participants only need to pay their travel costs to and from Queen Mary; all teaching, accommodation and subsistence costs during the course are paid by The Goldsmiths' Company. You are expected to stay on campus for the duration of the course.
Due to Olympics commitments we were unable to run the course in 2012 but it will return in 2013 from Sunday 21 to Friday 26 July. To make a booking please visit The Goldsmiths' Company Science for Society Courses website.
This course is not directly about teaching, but is intended to inform and inspire teachers of A-level mathematics and science-related subjects. Sessions will range from expanding on GCE Further Mathematics topics to explaining current research at Queen Mary and the application and relevance of modern mathematics in today's technology. The course will cover mathematical computing and cryptography, and include a visit to somewhere like the National Codes Centre at Bletchley Park or the London Science Museum. The course is taught by several Queen Mary academic staff, who will each focus on their own research and/or teaching interests.
