Revolutionise your classroom
We know that choosing the right technology for teaching STEM subjects is crucial, so we are bringing together heads of departments UK-wide on this subject. This free-to attend workshop will give you fresh ideas how to engage your students using Mathematica in maths, physics, biosciences, and more. Wolfram technologies have been bridging the gap between education and employment, bringing industry approved tools into the classroom for 25 years.
This informal afternoon workshop will comprise:
- Case study from Sevenoaks School
- Overview of Mathematica in Education
- Hands-on session; you can bring your own laptop to join in
The following topics will be covered:
- Experiencing Mathematica's integrated data sources for chemicals, particles, cities and countries, financial instruments, astronomical objects, and more
- Editing text, generating quizzes or reports, and making presentations
- Including real-world data in your lessons
- Making your lessons instantly interactive
- Creating dynamic 2D and 3D graphics
- Leveraging visualization tools and annotated graph
