Creative Mathematics for Teachers

Creative mathematics II for teachers

Thursday 2 April | 7 - 9pm |  €25

10% discount for Cultivate Members | Cultivate Centre | Essex St West | Bookings: 01 674 5773

Participants will explore magic squares, angle trisection and mathematics in the 9-pointed star, and creative evaluation techniques; which are meant to encourage rather than merely assess and have shown great results.  The program is meant as a continuation of the well-attended workshop held last summer at Cultivate though certainly new people may attend.

Participants should bring compass, ruler, calculator and plain white paper or notebook. 

 

Creative mathematics III for teachers

Saturday 4 April | 2.30pm - 4pm |  €25 (participants may keep their Tubespace kit valued at €10)

10% discount for Cultivate Members | Cultivate Centre | Essex St West | Bookings: 01 674 5773 

Plato to Euler in 45 minutes and you keep the kit.  This workshop begins by experimenting with form creation from regular polygonal figures.  Participants will then construct those same forms using a new product called Tubespace.  http://www.emergentworld.com/EmergentWorld____Spaceforms.php

We will learn through our hands and visually the Euler formula x = V – E + F.  The program will then continue with demonstration and experimentation with Tubespace, particularly in developing stellations and duals. 

Those interested in taking both creative math sessions can receive a 10% discount.
