Event description

Description

A good mathematician can spot patterns in numbers, shapes, words and more. The question that they then ask is ‘Can I find a way to describe this pattern mathematically?’ They can also make predictions as to what might come next based on the patterns that they have found. Once they have made those predictions, the mathematician needs to make sure that the pattern works for all possible cases–can the pattern be proved, or is it just a conjecture that seems to work. This interactive session with Jenny Sharp is all about finding patterns, describing patterns mathematically, making predictions and testing them.

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 summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
