On Thursday 8th November 2018, Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai (founder of MathsThroughStories.org) was invited to give a talk at the Pearson roundtable discussion on key issues facing mathematics in Britain today. The event was held at Pearson's headquarter in London.
In his role as Founder of MathsThroughStories.org, Dr. Trakulphadetkrai used his talk to highlight and advocate for an innovative mathematics learning approach, namely learning mathematics by creating mathematical story picture books, to his audience. Drawing from the findings of his pilot research on this topic, he showed how promising this pedagogical approach could be.
Dr. Trakulphadetkrai was joined by two mathematics teachers in this roundtable discussion, which was chaired by Ann Mroz (Editor of Times Educational Supplement). The event was held at Pearson’s headquarter in central London, and attended by representatives of educational organisations in both the public and private sectors.
Dr. Trakulphadetkrai's key arguments are subsequently highlighted in the post-event report below and can be accessed in full here.
