Dr Jennie Golding  President, The Mathematical Association, 2016-17 Learning from Young Mathematicians Wednesday 8th February, 7pm for 7:30pm start One of the great joys of teaching mathematics is what we can learn from those we ‘teach’. Join me in exploring some intriguing, humbling and sometimes wacky lessons from my own students. What are the wider implications for us as teachers? How and why should we develop and nurture classrooms which are genuine mathematical communities for both students and teachers? Public visitor parking is available on campus after 5pm on a ‘pay on exit’ basis – details can be found at http://carparking.leeds.ac.uk/visitors/ This is a Yorkshire Branch of the Mathematical Association event (www.ybma.org.uk).  Non-members are welcome.  Please bring the sessions to the attention of your colleagues and friends.  Our meetings are very friendly and include refreshments.  Anyone who would like to be added to the YBMA email list should send their name and email address to a.slomson@leeds.ac.uk.
