"Doing Maths Like a Mathematician" School Workshops

Date: 2016-06-07

Ever wondered how a mathematician thinks about and solves a problem? What does ‘doing maths’ look like? The best way to answer these questions is to get a group of people together to share strategies and think about mathematical problems. In June, ACEMS is doing just that all over Australia!  You'll get to meet and work with mathematicians and like-minded ...
