Maths for the Terrified

Were you bored by maths at school? Did you ever have an interesting maths lesson? Does algebra make you anxious? Are you puzzled by probability? Did you never get the measure of geometry? Do prime numbers perplex you? How can some people find mathematics exciting while most of us are turned off? This day school will try to show that maths can be intriguing, interesting and enjoyable.

There is more to maths than hard sums and you will not be doing any of those. This is not a lecture. There will be hands-on activities and you will be working with other people. Of course in the spirit of CASA we shall be trying to get rusty brains working but it should also be a stimulating day’s ramble across the varied landscape of mathematics.
