An important part of mathematics is that concerning the properties of two and three dimensional shapes.
In this session students will lean how shapes get their names; find out how many edges, vertices and faces a dodecahedron has; draw a regular hexagon without measuring anything; create an one sided 2 dimensional shape plus many other weird and wonderful things they get hands-on and practical exploring shapes and their properties.
Jenny Sharp works at Plymouth University. As well as teaching on the undergraduate programmes, she runs a very busy Mathematics Enrichment Programme for Schools throughout Devon and Cornwall, running workshops for pupils and their teachers from Year 5 through to Year 10.
Jenny is a regular Ri Mathematics Masterclass speaker and has delivered Masterclasses on a wide range of topics.
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.
Discounted tickets are available to Ri Members. Find out more about how to join.
