About this Event
“How do I bring God into my Maths lessons?” is often a question asked by teachers in a Christian school. “What does God have to do with Maths?” is a question students sometimes ask. This session is designed to help both primary and secondary teachers to explore these questions. A God honouring exploration of Mathematics, when undertaken with thoughtful excellence, can enrich the lives of the students and the school culture.
