Professor Dame Celia Hoyles is pretty much the closest one gets to royalty in mathematics education.

“I’ve been around a long while,” she laughs, at the beginning of our conversation for this week’s Tes Mathematips podcast.

Her decades of experience in maths education have been at the cutting edge of research. She has continually examined the place of technology and computing in maths learning, and explored innovative ways to assist students and teachers with all three.

In this podcast, the main focus is the use of microworlds for teaching maths.
