This is Lynne’s third visit to India and she is very much looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and meeting new colleagues, and sharing her passion for mathematics and the entitlement of every learner to a rich and meaningful mathematical experience, beginning with the early years.
Lynne is currently Director of Cambridge Mathematics, a University of Cambridge design research project which brings together the expertise of the Faculties of Mathematics and Education, and Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press. The Cambridge Maths team has designed a digital knowledge map which uses graph visualisation and analysis to illustrate the conceptual connections in mathematics from early years onwards. This will eventually support the design of coherent and well-aligned curricular resources, assessment and teacher CPD.
Lynne’s previous roles include as Director of NRICH, based in the University’s Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Principal Lecturer and PGCE course leader at two leading UK Universities, Headteacher of a small primary school and Director of her own international consultancy. She chaired the teams which advised English ministers on the content of the latest mathematics National Curriculum and is a member of the Royal Society’s Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) and Mathematics Futures strategy board. Lynne sits on the advisory board of several large UK and European mathematics projects and was President of the Mathematical Association in 2014/15, and Executive Chair of the International Society for Design and Development in Education from January 2017. Lynne is the author or editor of many books and articles, and is well known as a conference speaker and professional development lead.
