Binary Problems and Investigations

15 March 2017

Branch:  Exeter Branch

Title:              Binary Problems and Investigations

Presenter:     Dr Chris Pritchard

Date:              Wednesday, 15th March 2017

Time:              6:30 pm for 7 pm start

Summary:     Binary numbers (and their kin) turn up in a variety of situations in elementary mathematics. We will consider some problems and investigations in which binary can be sued, from modelling paper-folding to the generation of bubble diagrams, and from the arrangement of Cuisenaire rods to shunting trucks.  All of the contexts are suitable for 11-16 year olds but they will bring challenge and surprise to all who attend. 

Venue:           Exeter Maths School, Rougemont House, Castle Street, Exeter, EX4 3PU
