Secondary mathematics parents' pilot project

This e-learning course takes you through everything you need to know about holding a mathematics workshop for parents and pupils. It includes checklists, activity suggestions and case studies, as well as videos of workshops taking place and the reactions of parents, pupils and teachers.There are four modules in this course:

  1. What do you want to achieve?
  2. Planning the workshop: What practical arrangements do you need to make?
  3. On the day: What will happen and how will you make sure it runs smoothly?
  4. After the workshop: What went well, what could be improved?

Learning outcomes
