Numbers behave in strange and mysterious ways that can at first seem like magic.
Students will join Katie Steckles to explore these phenomena, and learn some mathematical magic tricks to impress your friends with.
Bring your problem solving hat, and see if you can sort the maths from the magic.
Katie Steckles is a mathematician based in Manchester who gives talks and workshops on different areas of mathematics. She finished her PhD in 2011, and since then has talked about mathematics in schools, at science festivals, at music festivals, as part of theatre shows and on the internet.
Katie enjoys doing puzzles, solving the Rubik's cube and baking mathematically shaped things.
This workshop is strictly for 10-12 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
The Mathematics Summer School workshops are based on Ri Mathematics 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.
