MathsCraft Session Leader Workshop


21 - 25 Nov 2018 (Wed - Sun)


MathsCraft - Doing maths like a research mathematician

Enabling your students to work in a way that is similar to the way a research mathematician works can dramatically change the classroom experience, for the better. Would you like to find out how, for example, a topic like Pythagoras' Theorem could be approached a little differently?

This immersive professional development event will give you more information about the MathsCraft program, and equip you to become a leader of MathsCraft sessions in your area.


Mathscraft: MATRIX, Creswick VIC


9:00am – 12:30pm, Thursday 22 November 2018


Mathscraft is a fun event for school students, which aims to give them a taste of what 'real' maths is like. They are led through finding ways to solve problems by spotting patterns, making conjectures, and convincing themselves and others. They'll also have the opportunity to meet and work with research mathematicians.

This event is free, with morning tea provided. It's aimed at year 7-10 students with any level of interest in maths.
