Movies through a mathematical lens


Providing an authentic hook is a powerful way of engaging students in mathematics. Building on a narrative-first approach that uses picture story books to energise mathematics lessons, we will explore how films can be used as a catalyst for rich maths investigations. Participants will have an opportunity to examine snippets from much loved films through a mathematical lens. The maths investigations we will look at, inspired by the narrative arc or characters from a film, may provide inspiration for participants to develop their own tasks based on films. So grab your popcorn and your choc top, settle in, and join us on this mathematical adventure.
