In the last few weeks, Dr Jenny Sharp has been running a number of workshops for year 6 pupils, that is the final year of primary school. This part of the activities of the: The Mathematics Enrichment Programme with Plymouth University.

There were three main activities:

  1. Coordinates on a graphic calculator
  2. Tessellations
  3. Carousel of Puzzles

The second and third activities were taught by students on the Mathematics with Education. This gave them some valuable teaching experience.
