Summer Schools: Counting with trees (age 7–9)
Fri 4 August 2017, 10:30 – 12:45 BST
The 1,2,3... system we use to write down numbers is called ‘base 10’, but what is a base and how many others are there? Join Zoe Griffiths to find out, in a hands-on journey through the intriguing world of number bases. First we will stop at three-world counting with trees, before voyaging on to see other number bases that have far reaching applications from magic tricks to computing.
Please note: This workshop is strictly for 7–9 year-olds. There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies
