Accessibility Presentation

Polar Opposites? Can contradictions between art and mathematics classrooms create inclusive spaces for learning?

The contexts for teaching art and teaching mathematics in secondary schools are rich with contradictions in terms of content, representation, cognition and culture, as well as social and emotional features. This presentation invites you to consider a Maths-Art project that initially uses art images to entice reluctant mathematics learners to make connections and reason in number theory, leading to a stimulus for young people to represent their own responses as learners through art. The project acknowledges the place of maths anxiety, the status of art and maths in secondary schools and high stakes assessment in the construction of a project that endeavours to present a more inclusive and imaginative experience of learning number theory. This project challenges conventional boundaries between subject domains in the hope of creating a lesson design that can contribute to the development of inclusive and challenging STEAM education. This presentation will share the design and implementation of the Maths-Art project and endeavour to represent the experiences of the young people by giving voice to their perceptions through their art images and words.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
