Maths Problem Solving – Numbers beyond a million and tricks with numbers! (Bright Minds Years 3-4)
Mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills develop through exposure, experience and engagement. Students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with their peers; developing rich mathematical thinking skills as they justify, explain, explore and convince others of the processes and solutions to problems.
This workshop specifically focusses on working with and understanding, large numbers. Students will also explore number tricks that rely on patterning.
