Maths Week Scotland

The Dollar Academy Maths Department is joining the rest of Scotland this week to celebrate Maths Week Scotland.

The department will be participating in a live online event hosted by, among others, Matt Parker, author of Humble Pi.

Throughout the week, the Maths Department is encouraging pupils, parents and members of the Dollar community to get involved in this event by engaging in some of the fun challenges available on the Maths Week Scotland website.

 

Head of Maths at Dollar, John Hamilton said: “More so than ever, maths is relevant in our everyday lives. We have spent months as a nation inspecting graphs and becoming experts on what the phrase ‘exponential growth’ means. Maths Week Scotland gives us an opportunity to make maths come to life and links real life problems to what is studied in the classroom. I am delighted that we have the opportunity at Dollar to participate in a live and interactive lesson through the use of technology in the classroom.
