FINLAND MATHS STUDY TOUR 2014

How is Maths taught in Finland? What might assist us in moving maths forward in Leicestershire?

In October 2014 colleagues from the STEP and Affinity Teaching School Alliances took part in a mathematics research trip to Finland with SSAT. The aim of the visit was to gain a better understanding of how mathematics is taught in Finland and to see whether any of these methods could support learning in our schools. The trip was also a great opportunity to observe the differences between the Finnish and UK educational systems.
