ASE West Midlands - a series of Workshops: Using Maths in Science to promote progress

17 March 2020
12:30 - 16:00
Blakesley Hall Museum
Blakesley Road , Birmingham B25 8RN , United Kingdom

This Maths and Science series of workshops is aimed at students, primary and secondary teachers who are involved with science and maths teaching.

Event Type: 
West Midlands (Herefordshire, West Midlands, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire)

Full details

This Maths and Science series of workshops is aimed at students, primary and secondary teachers who are involved with scienceand maths teaching.

We will be promoting how progress in maths and science, using a common language and ideas, can help to enable pupils to make links between these two subjects. Once these links are made pupils will be able to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding they have gained, within maths and science, to their own learning experiences.

Implicit within the event aim is the view that children naturally learn in a cross curricular manner, but in both primary and secondary learning environments there are conflicts. These conflicts within maths and science will be challenged in these workshops.

Ofsted School Inspection 2019 reported:

"People learn new knowledge when new concepts are connected in their minds with what they have already learned."

Primary Workshops

Workshop 1 maths and science primary (EY to KS1)( 35 places)


Workshop 2 maths and science primary (KS2) (35 places)


Workshop 3: NFU: STEMterprise Workshop (15 places)

Presenting STEM learning within the context of engaging, real life problems gives children a sense of the purpose and direction of their learning.

In this exciting practical session, we’ll be introducing our cross-curricular project schemes that use real life problems as engaging contexts for learning..

Workshop 4 Science of the Tudors (15 places)

Hands-on workshop from the Royal Society of Chemistry linking the primary science learning objectives to the food, health and other challenges of the Tudor period and present ideas for cross-curricular activities to inspire the scientists of the future. All activities fully implementable in a primary classroom.  

Secondary Workshops

Workshop 1 Maths and Science using equations, graphs and more (40 places)


Workshop 2 Problem solving in maths and science (40 places)


Workshop 3 Three ways to introduce titrations. (15 places)

Titrations are now a required practical but often feel inaccessible to KS4 students. This short session with the Royal Society of Chemistry will equip you with three ideas for introducing the titrations session without the intimidation (or breakage risk) of a burette.

Workshop 4 Maths in physics TBC

We Look forward to meeting you on the day
