Mathematical Resilience International Workshop 1-5 July 2024

This workshop is supported with funds from the ICMS Mathematics for Humanity programme.

The workshop will be held 1-5th July 2024 at University of Warwick.

The workshop programme and link to book places is hereLink opens in a new window.

It will be followed by a 1-day conference on 6th July.

The timing of this workshop is soon after the publication of the Mathematical Resilience Book. It also comes at a time when OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) has begun systematic investigation of emotions and academic well-being. The Mathematical Resilience is part of an effort to bring a basic understanding of positive psychology to the problem of mathematics anxiety and to safeguarding of mathematical well-being, to address the colonial legacy of mathematics being elitist, exclusive and inaccessible to many at a time when modern nations lack sufficient numeracy skills.

The main questions that guide us are how psychological and educational methodologies can converge to include students with mathematics anxiety and how to promote mathematical resilience.

We seek to support researchers, including teacher-researchers and Early Career Researchers, in developing and researching the use of the Mathematical Resilience Framework in their own countries and socio-cultural settings. We plan to address positive social change within the mathematical sciences and with the interface with socio-political challenges.
