Steve Humble (aka Dr Maths) believes that the fundamentals of mathematics can be taught via practical experiments. Having worked as a maths subject leader in various educational establishments for over 20 years, he has spent the last five years as a Senior Regional Coordinator for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). Now working as a Freelance Mathematics Consultant, he supports schools in raising their student achievement through creating a positive attitude to maths. Steve also works with the Further Mathematics Support Programme and teaches mathematics on the Primary PGCE Course at Newcastle University. In his role as a maths publicist he writes a fortnightly column for the Evening Chronicle newspaper to help create greater public understanding of mathematics. Carol Vorderman’s recent UK government report on mathematics education described Steve as “an inspiring individual, providing opportunities for children to do mathematics that they find exciting and interesting”. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most children learning maths outside the classroom.
