This year during Maths Week Ireland, W5 will be running a special event for P5, P6 and P7 pupils. We are looking forward to welcoming back a special facilitator, Douglas Buchanan (AKA DCBEAGLE)!
Doug’s presentations give participants the opportunity to work in pairs or small groups to solve various puzzles. It gives them the chance to collaborate and also allows them to stretch their mathematical skills.
Doug travels around the United Kingdom hosting maths challenges and rather puzzling workshops for schools. His aim is to make maths teaching and learning meaningful and appealing by keeping away from the textbook and presenting the subject through problem solving.
Please note - This event is now FULLY BOOKED
This event is FREE and includes admission to W5 (Spacebase not included). Two sessions will be running on Thursday 17 October at 11am & 12.30pm. Suitable for P5, P6 & P7 pupils. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis (max. 50 pupils per school booking) Please call 028 9046 7790 to book your place.
