Mike Askew:   The Heart of reasoning

  The Heart of Reasoning (721.3 KiB, 6 hits)

Mike Askew is Distinguished Professor of Mathematics Education in the School of Education at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, having previously held Professorships at King’s College, University of London and Monash University, Melbourne. Originally a primary school teacher, Mike moved into teacher education and developed his interest in research. He has directed many research projects including the influential ‘Effective Teachers of Numeracy in Primary Schools’ and was deputy director of the five-year Leverhulme Numeracy Research Programme. His books include: Transforming Primary Mathematics, A Practical Guide to Transforming Primary Mathematics and the popular Maths for Mums and Dads (with Rob Eastaway).

Mike believes that mathematical activity can be, and should be, engaging and enjoyable for all learners and that the majority of learners can come to see themselves as mathematicians, in the sense of having confidence in their ability to do maths.

From April 2018 Mike is pleased to be the President of the Mathematical Association.
