With increasingly gloomy weather and restrictions on venturing out, why not give your brain some exercise instead of your feet!
The national u3a website has always had some great resources, and now has a new winter learning programme with links to some intriguing activities.
Among the many online events are three Zoom sessions for anyone with an interest in maths
- Maths on the Back of an Envelope – a talk by Rob Eastaway (author of Why Do Buses Come in Threes? and Maths for Mums and Dads) followed by questions and answers
- Maths problems and puzzles workshop – an interactive event solving maths puzzles for a range of abilities, hosted by Maths and Stats Subject Adviser, David Martin
- Maths activities and games – a fun session of maths games including numerical quizzes and tasks, again hosted ny David Martin
All three of these online events are part of the u3a series of events to tie in with Maths Week 2020 which runs from 9th to 14th November.
If these whet your appetite, you may be interested in the weekly Maths Challenge run by the national u3a – with 30 week’s worth (and counting!) of challenges to have a go at!
