Diagrammatic Reasoning in Higher Education

Fri, 9th Nov 2018 — Sun, 11th Nov 2018
X703, NewSpaceCity Campus

A workshop on the teaching of mathematical concepts using diagrammatic reasoning in higher education, investigating the potential for diagrammatic reasoning to be used to enhance the teaching of mathematics and abstract concepts across a range of disciplines (of business and economics, physics, engineering, and computer science) at the University of Newcastle. It will investigate the potential of diagrammatic reasoning as a novel pedagogical tool to enhance the learning of diverse student cohorts. For further information, please visit the workshop website.



9:00 am, Tue, 13th Nov 2018
X602, NewSpaceCity Campus

This year, EViMS will continue to provoke and promote creativity and cross-fertilisation across mathematics research and mathematics education. For further information, please visit the workshop website.

These are the events in the next 7 days. For more, see the events page.

Selected quotation

"I started drinking the Kool-Aid so long ago that I can no longer taste it. I am sure I will continue my unbroken streak of mindless devotion to Apple and find a way to love the iPad, no matter how expensive and unnecessary it is. Knowledge of self is no fun."

(Sasha Frere-Jones)

Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
