We must all do something about mathematics!
    Thursday July 12, 2012 10:45am - 12:15pm @ Wicklow Meeting Room 3

    Mathematics is a key subject in all other sciences, therefore the state of mathematics should be of concern to all scientists. There is widespread anxiety in many European countries about the level of engagement with mathematics and performance of students in schools. It was in response to this that Maths Week Ireland was founded in 2006, and has now grown into a major public event. It is a successful, effective and low cost model that could be adopted in all European Countries.

    This session will be delivered by experienced practitioners and is designed to present the audience with an overview of the proven means for promoting maths. Participants will also be challenged by puzzles and entertained by a few tricks. The short snappy form of the presentations will give an entertaining but brief overview of the subject area.
