The Maths Quiz

Workshop Categories: Algorithms & Programming

About

Taken from the material originally developed at Langley Grammar School, this workshop combines mental maths skills with computing and algorithmic thinking.

The day begins by encouraging pupils to think about about algorithms and introduces this concept through magic. Early on pupils are encouraged to decompose existing puzzles and tricks to identify the algorithm behind them as well as extend their learning to develop their own puzzles and magic tricks. Pupils then move onto the concept of variables and random numbers using unplugged activities before the quiz is introduced.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please get in touch with the team: dsh@ukie.org.uk
