Monster Maths

Updated 19.02.2021

Tue 2 March 2021

12:00 – 12:30

VIRTUAL

FREE

This session will explore mathematical ideas in a fun way using lego or other materials to hand. We will use talk and open questions to promote mathematical ideas related to scale and proportion using models.

Dr Amanda O’Shea will carry out this session and she has been a teacher of mathematics for many years before joining the University of Northampton. She now leads postgraduate programmes in developing teachers’ mathematical subject and pedagogical understanding at primary and secondary level. Amanda’s main interests are in developing a deep understanding and exploration of mathematical ideas.

Come prepared with a small monster or animal constructed from lego-type bricks, junk boxes or from flat paper/cardboard, either 2D or 3D. Having another person to talk with would also be useful.

This event is open to all UON staff, students, and members of the public.
