Nerding out over number talks

As a previously maths-anxious primary practitioner, discovering the very existence of number talks not only helped to create a joyful and inclusive routine for learners, but improved my own developing number sense and enjoyment of working with numbers.

This session is a dedicated focus on what number talks involve and how they´re an inclusive approach transforming the mathematical experience of learners and teachers everywhere.
