Dyscalculia Workshop - Helping Students Develop Mathematical Understandings - Dr Judi Humbestone

Monday 23rd April 2018

LDA are running a workshop with Dr Judi Humberstone, a leading expert, who will explain how primary age children actually learn mathematical concepts and how their mathematic learning potential can be assessed.

Date: Saturday 19 May 2018

Time: 9.30am - 1.00pm, Registration from 9.00am

Venue: Treacy Centre, 126 The Avenue, Parkville, Melbourne

Dr Judi Humberstone, Senior Lecturer and Psychologist, Number Cognition Lab at University of Melbourne, is a trained mathematics teacher who has taught in Australia and the UK for over 30 years. Motivated by the number of students reporting a dislike for maths and the significant impact a lack of maths ability has on the self-esteem of affected individuals, Judi retrained as a clinical psychologist. Judis current research aims to answer the question: How do children acquire mathematical understanding? In association with colleagues, Judi's research addresses:

  • The relationships between the development of mathematical concepts and general cognitive abilities across the primary-school years
  • Individual differences in the development of primary-school aged children's arithmetic competence
  • Individual differences in students acquisition of algebraic ability
  • The use of interactive assessment to evaluate children's mathematical learning potential in rational number and algebra.
