Sent at the request of Anne Watson.
******************************
The 13th Annual INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS PEDAGOGY

will take place at the Ripon-Cuddesdon College, Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire OX44 9EX

from Tuesday Aug 6th to Friday Aug 9th 2013

The Institute will be led by John Mason, Malcolm
Swan and Anne Watson and will consist of work on
mathematics, readings, reflections and
discussions about teaching and learning
mathematics.

There will be a full programme from 2pm on the
6th until lunchtime on the 9th, including evening
activities.

This year's theme is: Exchange & Substitution

Is exchange useful as a metaphor, or as an
awareness to underpin other mathematical topics?

Might exchange provide an enactive basis for
understanding arithmetic, algebra, and reasoning?

Is understanding exchange necessary for making progress in mathematics?

How might exchange be expressed so that young
children have access to relevant tasks?

What other manifestations of exchange or
substitution might underpin mathematical topics?

There will be no papers or formal presentations;
the group will work together intensively and
creatively with issues and ideas to develop
thinking and practice. See
http://www.atm.org.uk/mt/archive/mt191files/ATM-MT191-37-40.pdf
for some insight into how the Institute operates.

The fee will be £340 which includes accommodation
during the Institute, all meals and other
refreshments, materials and so on.

Non resident fee is £175. A limited number of bursaries may be available.

We shall need a non-returnable £50 deposit to
hold a place (if your institution is paying, then
the full fee would be appreciated).
