  • Day and time: Thursday 14:15 - 15:15
  • Length of course: 1 term. Autumn (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 12
  • Start date: 08 October 2020
  • Description:

    When telling people I am a maths teacher I have often encountered the somewhat nervous response 'I was never any good at maths at school!'. I hope those that take up this course will eventually agree with its title 'Maths can be fun'. The course will cover a range of topics starting with the counting numbers and moving to Fibonacci sequences, prime numbers, Pascal's triangle, probability, problem solving - the composition of the group will steer the content and level. Links with art and music will be explored. No previous experience is required except a basic ability in arithmetic and an interest in numbers and problem solving. Please bring paper, pen, pencil, rubber, ruler and calculator to sessions.

  • Format: Taught course or activity

  • Leader: Sarah Payne
  • I was a sixth form Maths teacher for most of my career and enjoy this opportunity to dip into non-syllabus topics with (usually!) an eager and responsive group.
