Virtual Maths Camp

Tuesday, 24. April 2012 13:54

We are anticipating a high volume of applicants for the camp this year and subsequent years and so not everyone who applies will be able to come. We are looking to develop a virtual camp to run at the same time as the real camp. There are already resources, ideas and puzzles of the week that are currently on our Maseno Maths Camp website, but the idea for a virtual camp is going to be more than a platform for resources.  The concept will be to use the computer to build an envirnonment where students can explore concepts in a microworld.

Last week saw the final paper submissions for the ICME conference in South Korea in July.  Several of the faciliators from the Maseno Maths Camp are presenting papers, one of which describes the camp and future plans.  This is a great opportunity to attract more international attention for the camp and we are all hugely excited.
