7 - 9 June 2017 University of Glasgow, Scotland




The Second International Conference on Barriers and Enablers to Learning Maths follows the highly successful 2015 conference. Mathematics should be understood in the widest possible sense to cover all aspects of mathematics, including number, pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and the full range of applications of mathematics. For information on the first conference see here.

The conference examines learning and teaching throughout the life span, from the most basic to the most advanced topics and for the full range of learners, including people with dyscalculia and other maths learning difficulties, gifted learners, mathematicians and 'traditional' larners. This should lead to cross-fertilisation between different areas of learning and teaching. The conference is also highly interdisciplinary. In addition to mathematicians, it should be of interest amongst others to psychologists, teachers, pedagogical and educational experts, engineers, scientists and social scientists.

Submission of papers, proposals for special thematic sesions and proposals for working sessions is invited to the following four conference tracks:

Motivation and maths anxiety
Inclusive practice and learners’ particular requirements
Effective practice - what does and does not work
The use of technology to support learning, teaching and interaction between students and students and teachers.
