As a mathematician and playwright, John Mighton believes there are more connections between the arts and the sciences than people generally think, and that scientists and mathematicians are often led by a sense of beauty or elegance. He believes that, "If the two worlds communicated more, we'd have much richer art and science as a result.” John will discuss his philosophy, his work, and his approach to education and the belief that we must nurture every child’s potential. He will also describe effective methods of teaching mathematics, backed by rigorous evidence, and draw connections between these methods and the latest research in cognitive science: this research suggests that with the right approach, virtually every child can learn and love learning.
