Annette Garrett-Cox, MSc (Neuroscience and Education)

Research Associate at the University of Bristol & Lecturer at Bath Spa University.

Annette is a specialist teacher and leader of mathematics across the developmental stages of childhood, a provider of professional development for schools and a researcher in education.  She is particularly interested in the use of neuroscience to inform classroom practice, planning and reflection, how neuroscience can support an understanding of how children learn mathematics, and the development of best practice in the use of physical, pictorial and abstract representations in mathematics.

Annette is the research associate for the Science of Learning for Initial Teacher Education (SoLfITE) project, funded by the Wellcome Trust. The resulting open-access resources can be found at Annette lectures on dyscalculia and difficulties learning mathematics on the MA (Inclusive Education) programme at Bath Spa University and was previously the associate teacher for the University of Bristol ‘Cognitive Neuroscience in Classroom Practice’ module on the MSc (Education) programme.
