Title of event/project:
Excursions in Mathematics
URL to project/event starting point:
Excursions in Mathematics is an opportunity for students from around the world to come together as they engage in monthly mathematical experiences. Each month students will take a journey to some part of the world to learn about the mathematics that originated there and why it is significant to today. During each of the 8 excursions there will be opportunities for collaboration with other students from around the world. Students will be engaged in: • Logical reasoning experiences while investigating and working with a variety of mathematical topics, • Writing about the mathematics they are studying, • Making interdisciplinary connections, and • Investigating the historical development of Mathematics and the implications for their work in today’s society. Blendspace will be the platform through which students and classes interact. Each month a Blendspace will be set up for the Excursion for that month.
