This year because of the global Covid 19 pandemic, the number of events are limited. Please check back here as we will continue to post events as they are confirmed.
October 18, 2021 - October 22, 2021
Interested in Mathematical Mysteries? The UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics is organising an interactive virtual event for Maths Week 2021 and would like to invite all 4th-6th year students of Irish secondary schools to take part!
The event will take place from 18-22 October. Each day we will release a short video describing an interesting mathematics or statistics problem/paradox. The videos will be accompanied by a couple of questions for students to solve. We propose that teachers show the videos in class and assign some class time for working on the problems. We envision that this will take up 15-20 minutes of class time each day. The answers of each group of students will be submitted electronically and the winners will be announced during the subsequent week (25-29 October).
If you are a teacher who is interested in our event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 13/10/2021. We will then give you detailed instructions about the process of the competition.
