Mad Maths! with Dr John West @ Wanneroo Library

8 – 12 years old. Register your childs name NOW.

Join Dr John West and make maths awesome! Former maths teacher and uni lecturer Dr John is a number champion ready to make sense (and fun) out of mathematics. Join us for our Mad Maths sessions, showcasing how maths can be interesting and useful beyond the classroom. Find out how with Dr John!

This week’s session is Activate your Algebrain! This workshop focuses on developing intuitive ideas about algebra, helping them solve real-world problems. We'll see that the techniques you already use for representing information form the basis of algebraic thinking. We'll also dispel common myths about algebra (e.g., that it is too difficult and too abstract), tackling any concerns that commonly arise.

Math expert and author Dr John has taught mathematics at all levels of school, including at UWA and ECU. He is currently serving as President of the Mathematical Association of Western Australia (MAWA) and as Editor of Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom.
