With the present focus on literacy and numeracy, it is timely that the Association of Teachers’/Education Centres of Ireland (ATECI) have organised a conference with a focus on Numeracy. The conference entitled ‘Does It All Add Up?‘ takes place in the Sheldon Park Hotel, Kylemore Road, Dublin 10 on next Saturday 20th October from 9.00am to 2.00pm. There’s an impressive line-up of six speakers for the day speaking on various aspects of maths education. I’m informed that space for the conference is quite limited, so if you are interested in attending, more information, including the conference booking form, is available on the ATECI website.
