“During the course, I could see my confidence growing and I was able to repeat most of the exercise carried out in class at home with my son… if a parent learns how to identify the role of maths in every moment of their lives, they can use it to support their kid’s knowledge and boost their confidence in the subject!” – Parent on the programme

Research and Innovation Working Group for Culture Capital
The Maths Hub East Midlands West team are excited to share this new research and innovation workgroup.
This Work Group will explore Cultural Capital from a Primary perspective. It will include sharing experiences of how different children learn and understanding how the power of research can inform our practice and ultimately make a difference to children.
The learning challenges that our most vulnerable pupils face have only been highlighted since the start of the pandemic.
The aim of this Work Group (the first of its kind) is to reconceptualise the notion of Cultural Capital in relation to teaching maths for mastery and, through quality and equity-minded teaching, interrupt the deterministic relationship between cultural capital and mathematics attainment.
