            Description

            These are practical sessions where we start with open ended questions that lead to unexpected insights. We work together, we share ideas and questions. We figure out strategies for addressing all sorts of questions. We find tools to use to explore different ideas. This is far removed from unhappy memories of trying to learn maths by rote. You do not need to be good at maths - just willing to explore ideas. 

            The sessions are not about teaching you, or telling you. You will not have to remember stuff, nor recall stuff that is hard!  Thinking mathematically is about finding the satisfaction of investigating possibilities - and enjoying the "AHA" moments when ideas click in the brain - and creating new patterns to explore - and becoming confident in investigating all sorts of ideas.  Mathematics is a branch of philosophy where ideas are explored and tools for addressing practical problems are developed.
