a powerpoint from a talk (Tuesday 7th Feb 2017)
Ulverston Victoria High School - an impressive school, in many ways, situated with grand views of Cumbria. Many thanks to Sheila Hirst and departmental staff at the school for hosting the session so admirably well (scones and jam) and to Alison Scott and NNW mathshub for their support.
My intention for the session was to suggest some ways that students could be involved in tasks where variables do actually vary. This follows a view, expressed by Professor Anne Watson in particular, that we maybe don't do enough to explore functions/relations with students.
