EVENT TITLE:

Ah, Aha and Haha – Putting the Creativity (and fun) into Maths led by Rob Eastaway

DATE: Monday 28th January 2019

VENUE: University of Warwick – Westwood Lecture Theatre, Westwood Campus

TIME:  Arrival for 4:00pm for a light buffet.  The main conference will take place between 4:30-6:30pm.

EVENT OVERVIEW:

Ask an adult to think back to the maths they learned at school, and very few will recall a subject that was creative. Yet maths can be one of the most creative subjects in the curriculum. Drawing on his experience as an author, presenter and parent, Rob concentrates on the side of maths that can be surprising, engaging and beautiful for children and adults of all abilities. With examples of games, curiosities and mathematical “magic”, this workshop is about enriching teachers’ own view of maths, as well as offering numerous ideas that can be transferred straight to the classroom.
