We are delighted to announce this year's speaker is Dr Lara Alcock from Loughborough University.Dr Alcock will give a lecture titled:-
Learning Mathematics by Reading
How do people learn mathematics? Partly by listening and partly by problem solving, but also by reading. This is especially true at higher levels of education and in professional mathematics. This lecture will present key results on mathematical reading, drawing on studies conducted using both standard experimental methods and eye-movement analyses. It will contrast novice and expert mathematical reading, and will incorporate related results about how people interpret the logical language of mathematics.
