FULLY BOOKED

For Maths Week 2021, at 1:30pm on the 18th , Mr. Math Weeney is offering Virtual Juggling Workshops. The activity involves students trying the skills of juggling and using quadratic graphs to model the path of each ball. All that students will need to bring is 3 pairs of socks each to participate. Teachers will be required to print off a resource booklet for each student which will be emailed in advance.

This workshop is targeted towards Transition Year and GCSE students.

The topics covered during the workshop include:

  • Composite and prime numbers
  • Plotting points
  • Quadratic functions in various forms
  • Translations
  • Patterns
  • Turning points
  • Points of intersection
  • Algebra
  • Poetry
  • Reflections on the learning process
  • Learning from failure
  • The iterative process

The event works best with groups up to 20 but depends largely on the teacher and the size of the classroom.
