SUMMARY:Mathscraft: Doing Maths Like a Mathematician
DESCRIPTION:How does a mathematician think about and solve prob
lems? What does ‘doing maths’ look like?The best way to answer these
questions is to get a group of people together to share strategies and thi
nk about mathematical problems. At Mathscraft you can do just that! You'll
get to meet and work with mathematicians and like-minded students and wor
k on interesting and challenging problems. Come and see what makes real ma
thematicians love maths!We want to show that maths isn’t just about gett
ing a right answer. It’s about exploring, understanding, and knowing tha
t there's always another question to ask. This is the process that a resea
rch mathematician goes through when he or she starts to tackle a problem.M
athsCraft sessions have been running since 2012, and are an initiative of
the Australian Research Council and Centre of Excellence for Mathematical
and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS). This session will be facilitated by Ian
Sheppard, Head of Mathematics at the The Geelong College Middle School, a
nd is suitable for students and teachers of students in Year 7-9.
