YuMi Deadly Centre Sharing Summit 2017
Engage learners, enjoy teaching, grow communities
YuMi Deadly Maths is a unique pedagogical approach developed by QUT's YuMi Deadly Centre to improve the capacity to teach mathematics and covers all strands of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum.
It aims for the highest level of mathematics understanding and deep learning, through activity that engages students and involves teachers, parents and community.
This year’s summit will focus on how YuMi Deadly Maths brings maths alive, putting fun and enjoyment back into learning and teaching maths, which in turn leads to strong learning communities. In the words of one Year 4 student at a YDM school: “At the start of the year … everyone hated maths. But now … with YuMi Deadly Maths, it’s just awesome, it’s fun, it’s energetic! It’s like games and learning!” Teachers enjoy it too: “YuMi has given me back a passion for maths, for teaching maths and for working with all students to love learning maths.”
You are invited to attend the summit to learn more about how to engage learners, enjoy teaching and grow communities with YuMi Deadly Maths.
The summit will take place from 8.30 am to 3.00 pm on Monday 30 October and Tuesday 31 October 2017 at QUT Kelvin Grove Campus, S Block, Rooms S307/S308.
The registration cost includes morning tea and lunch on both days.
