China Visit, International Congress of Mathematics Education and Massey University.


Tom Davies, (HoD Mathematics) recently visited China at the invitation of Hangzhou Normal University. He lectured Students, staff and visited many schools while he was there. He was invited to show how Maths is taught in Shirley Boys High School and how the NCEA Mathematics encourages problem solving and thinking. It was a hugely successful visit and very informative.

Tom has been invited back to China to teach in the University and Schools over there to demonstrate his teaching in action.
