The importance of maths + free live classes continue this week!
Two exciting things to tell you about this week: 1. Free webinar: The Importance of Maths with Thomas Briggs
Here is Thomas to explain what this webinar is all about: A popular question heard by maths teachers is "when am I ever going to need this?" For this 30-40 minute session, we'll focus on common maths topics that are familiar to most of our children and how they shape the world we live in today. "Nobody taught Eratosthenes maths knowing, or even hoping, that he'd be the first to find out something about the world we live in that we take for granted today. Similarly, nobody teaches maths to students in schools today thinking that they'll make a particular discovery, or use it in a particular way. What we do know is that if we don't work to give as many people as possible the tools to make these as yet unknown discoveries, then nobody will make them. This webinar is for teachers and parents.
