Share Sydney Ideas
Memorising dry, remote formulas. Crunching of meaningless numbers. These unfortunate learning experiences explain why maths is commonly maligned as a subject – more endured than enjoyed.
But the good news is that first impressions don’t have to last.
Card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups, killer butterflies, music, lightning and more all illuminate the world of maths that surrounds us. And Eddie Woo, one of the world's most inspirational mathematics teachers, will show us how.
Join us on Monday 3 December for this very special event, as the Australian Local Hero of the Year and proud University of Sydney graduate returns to campus to share his discoveries, answer your questions and reintroduce everyone to an immensely practical, genuinely surprising subject.
Eddie Woo will be in conversation with Secretary of the NSW Department of Education, Mark Scott AO.
This event was held on Monday 3 December, 2018 at the University of Sydney.
Each month we'll send you details about upcoming events, and a selection of podcasts.
