Maths Circles


Course description

We offer a free workshop for School Teachers about Maths Circles

Wednesday, 24 January at 4:30-6:00 pm

 

 At this workshop, we will provide ideas, methodologies and practical advice, but we also see it as an opportunity for like-minded teachers to get together and share their experience.

Here is some background information.

Maths Circles are lunch-time or after-school clubs, run by teachers in their schools. They provide learning activities in an informal setting that are designed to foster enjoyment of mathematics in young people. Their tradition goes back to more than a century in some countries in central and eastern Europe. In Ireland, Maths Circles were started a few years ago in the Cork area.

The Maths Circles Ireland initiative offers teachers the opportunity to enhance the teaching of creative problem solving in schools, based on our Maths Circles Handbook with fully-detailed and class room tested lesson plans. It can be downloaded for free from mathscircles.ie
