Event description


Looking at Nature through Mathematics and Mathematics through Nature

The Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh believe that mathematics is the science of patterns.

Join us as we explore order and patterns in nature as wonderful hooks to capture children's interest.

This workshop offers a series of hands-on activities to explore number sequences which begin to develop the mathematician's 'function sense' (abstracting, making links, unifying knowledge).The activities form an accessible way to introduce patterns in nature for lower primary right through to Fibonacci and similar concepts. All activities are practical.
