These Departmental Seminars are for everyone in Maths. We encourage anyone interested in the subject in general, or in the particular subject of the seminar, to come along. It's a great opportunity to meet people in the Maths Department and join in with our community.

Problem-solving Potential within the field of mathematics

Problem-solving Potential (PsP) is a triad construct, developed as part of a doctoral study, that encompasses a student's mindset, their mathematical resilience, and their problem-solving skills; which together influence the student's potential in mathematical problem-solving. In this talk, I will outline that theory that underlines PsP, its relevance to the teaching of mathematics, and the context and environment in which the PsP has been studied thus far.
