Juggling Mathematics Workshop with Mr Maths Weeney
Category : Post Primary
What a fantastic start to Maths Week. Our Transition Years students and 6th years did a Juggling Maths workshop with Mr Math Weeney. It was exciting, fun, interactive and engaging. Our students learnt some soft skills today on how to juggle and how to make a connection with Quadratic Equation. They learnt how to plot points of the juggling experience onto co -ordinate graph, identify the turning point and explore algebra. It was the most exciting mathematical lesson in Holy Family School. Not only did Mr Math Weeney enhance our students’ numerical skills he also injected some fun literacy activity into the workshop where students had to create an acrostic poem with the letters in JUGGLE. Special thanks to Eoin Gill from Maths Week Ireland for helping to make this workshop possible and inclusive by proving an ISL Interpreter. Thank you Mr Math Weeney for such a fun mathematical afternoon!
