Patterns, pizza and playing the guitar
Sat 12 Nov 2011 • 09:30-12:30 (coffee from 09:00)
Led by David Acheson: author of ‘1089 and All That’
Why are patterns so important? Does pizza have a place in serious mathematics? And what has all this got to do with playing the guitar? To find out, we take an off-beat look at some of the most important ideas in mathematics, and how they may be communicated at any level.
The ubiquitous isosceles triangle
Sat 19 Mar 2011 • 09:30-12:30 (coffee from 09:00)
Led by Pat Perks and Steph Prestage of the University of Birmingham.
Steph and Pat have for many years devised creative ideas aimed at bringing mathematical concepts to life in fun and active ways. This session will explore geometry with and from the isosceles triangle, guaranteed to inspire teachers in KS2-3 with ideas which can be taken straight into the classroom.
Developing mathematical concepts
14 Nov 09 • 09:30-12:40
Meeting with Malcolm Swan.
Professor Malcolm Swan will lead interactive sessions for primary and secondary colleagues separately modelling group activities that encourage pupils to classify, define, compare, formulate and simplify. Also, there will be a ‘swap shop’ for colleagues to share their favourite ideas for classroom activities.
