Maths Masterclass with Mike Askew: Reasons to Love Reasoning – Monday 24 September 2018 – Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter

Reasoning is at the heart of learning and doing mathematics. But evidence points out
that reasoning does not get as much attention in mathematics lessons as it should. Is it
that because fluency and problem solving need to come first, or because reasoning is
only something that a select few children can engage in? In this masterclass, Mike will
explore why it is important that all children get to engage in mathematical reasoning
and why reasoning is complementary to, but not directly dependent upon, fluency and
problem solving.
