Concept maps and mathematics learning: Evidence from practice

Please note: the event will be held online via MS Teams. All attendees will receive a joining link.

Cognitive processes of knowledge construction and organisation are considered determinants in mathematical learning and mathematical progress.

Within this context, the idea of using concept maps as a tool for monitoring and assessing students' understanding and changes in knowledge has grown among educational researchers in the field of mathematics and elsewhere.

In this presentation, Dr Sali Hammad will provide examples from the use of concept maps in mathematics classes that show the impact on students' mathematical understanding and achievement; examples from practice that highlight the importance of mapping own thinking and the role of reflection and metacognitive discussions in actualising the benefits of using concept maps in mathematics teaching and learning.

The examples derive from a research project in a mathematics foundation course at a university in Kuwait.

Who is this event for

Staff and Research students interested in mathematics and STEM education and in the role of conceptual understanding in learning.
Mathematics and science teachers from upper Key Stage 2 through to college and university
