EARCOS Workshop

Connecting Mathematics to the World Around Us

Workshop outline

Connecting Mathematics to the World Around Us is a course designed to help teachers bring out the beauty and applicability of mathematics for their students. In this course, you will put on a pair of mathematical glasses and view the world through a mathematical lens. You will model what we would like our students to do – to see mathematics everywhere; to think mathematically outside of the classroom and to appreciate its beauty and importance. You will learn how to create rich mathematical questions for students related to daily life; design; art; architecture; photographs; images from Google Earth; videos and newspaper articles.
