Event description

Description

Mathsweek Ireland and Queen's University are delighted to invite you to join us for what promises to be a hugely enjoyable and exciting event. We will be joined by one of the world's most inspirational maths communicators to facilitate a combination of hands-on puzzles and games aimed at promoting mathematics to students aged 13 – 15.

We are excited to welcome Dr Mark Saul, joining us from the USA to facilitate the Julia Robinson Mathematics festival. Mark is the Executive Director of the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival and this will be his second visit in two years to facilitate the Belfast event. A Festival is an event at which students play with mathematics. Typically, there are a dozen or more tables, each with a facilitator and a problem set, game, puzzle, or activity. Students play and explore individually or in groups, share insights, and make discoveries. We hosted the festival in 2016 and 2018, and the response from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. This is an ideal opportunity to bring classroom mathematics to life, and to have a lot of fun in the process.

We will be running two sessions, so you have the choice of attending either the morning (10.30 - 12.30) or the afternoon (2.15 - 4.15) session.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Unfortunately we cannot offer parking on campus due to limited space and ongoing building work. However, minibuses will be permitted entry to the main university site (University Square entrance) for drop-off and collection of pupils. In the registration form, please indicate if you require access. Larger buses should drop off on University Road (front of University)


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email mp.outreach@qub.ac.uk

Where is the Peter Frogatt Centre?

The PFC is on the central Queen's campus, situated on the main quad. From the front entrance to the building, pass through the black and white hall into the University Quadrangle, follow the path to your left, until you see the signs for the Mathsweek event.

What age group is this event for?

Although the event is appropriate for all high-school age students, we are targetting students in years 10 and 11 (ages 13-15).
