Year 6 workshops on Mathematics

This week Dr. Jenny Sharp is organizing a mathematics workshop for year 6 students (10 – 11 year olds.) Visiting school children go to lectures and do workshops in: using graphics calculators, the mathematics of magic squares and a carousel of puzzles.

Many of the workshops are run by students on our Mathematics with Education degree. This gives our students valuable experience with teaching mathematics to children.
