Summer Schools: Adventures in topology (age 13–15)
Mon 14 August 2017, 10:30 – 15:30 BST
In this workshop with Nikoleta Kalaydzhieva, students will explore the intriguing world of mathematical shapes, known as topology. They will see how 3D shapes can have only one side and what interesting things you can find when you cut these shapes up. Students will also investigate ideas of orientation, what it means for two shapes to be connected, and even extend thinking out into the fourth dimension!
Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a calculator.
Mathematics Summer School workshops are based on Ri Masterclasses. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on email@example.com with any questions.
