Mathematical Difficulties and Dyscalculia has always been strongly represented at the International Conference, and 2018 will be no exception.
Professor Daniel Ansari will lead the way with his keynote talk on Thursday 12th April: ‘Building blocks of mathematical competence: evidence from brain and behaviour’. Professor Ansari joins us from University of Western Ontario in Canada, where he heads the Numerical Cognition Laboratory. A specialist in his field, Professor Ansari’s work focuses on the development of numerical and mathematical skills.
In 2014, he was named a member of the inaugural cohort of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada. In 2015, he received the E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He received his doctorate from University College London in 2003.
Beyond Professor Ansari’s session, Mathematical issues will be a topic stream throughout the conference. Interested to find out more? Check out the IC:2018 Timetable here!
