Maths Workshops from Anyone 4 Science are an excellent hands-on activity to engage your pupils in the subject. We will come to your school and spend a day working with the children.

Mind Reading Maths

This workshop is suitable for children from 4th to 6th class and also for first year in secondary school.
The students are introduced to the concept of logic and of using the information you have to find out an unknown. Other number bases are introduced. The students make mind reading cards which are based on binary numbers. How the cards work is explained to stronger student groups.

Maths – Shaping our Future

This workshop is suitable for 4th to 6th classes. It investigates the concept that numbers have shapes. It investigates square numbers, binomials and square roots. Some interesting proofs of Pythagoras’s theorm are demonstrated.

Maths in Architecture

A dome is a structural element of architecture that resembles the hollow upper half of a sphere. Dome structures made of various materials have a long architectural lineage extending into prehistory. Domes have a great deal of structural strength when properly built and can span large open spaces without interior supports.
A geodesic dome is a spherical or partial-spherical shell structure based on a network of great circles on the surface of a sphere. Based on a series of equilateral and isosceles triangles they have local triangular rigidity and also distribute the stress across the structure. The first geodesic dome was built in the early 20th century. It was part of a “more for less” philosophy looking at making cheap, light housing for dispossessed people.
During this workshop the students build a geodesic dome from paper, which is strong enough to be lifted and big enough for a small person to fit inside.

Make your own calculator

For centuries mathematicians have been trying to simplify and remove the tedium from arithmetic calculations. Electronic calculators have done this for us. In this workshop you will find out how mathematicians did this long before the discovery of electricity and electronics and you will make your own calculator which you can use to change any multiplication sum into an addition one. This workshop is suitable for 5th class up to 2nd year.
