CARMA Special Semester - Special Semester on Mathematical Thinking (Mon 5 Nov-Fri 31st May 2019)

The next CARMA special semester programme is on the theme of Mathematical Thinking, examining the conceptual and neurological basis of mathematical thought and creativity, different aspects of which are associated with brain structures evolved for different purposes. It will explore links to machine learning, which plays a critical role as a model for cognition, as well as cognitive psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and pure and applied mathematics, through a series of workshops and other events. Please visit the semester's webpage for details. Events will also be listed on the events page of the CARMA website.

CARMA Workshop - Diagrammatic Reasoning in Higher Education (Fri 9 Nov-Sun 11th Nov 2018)

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.

CARMA and AMSI Workshop - AMSI-CARMA Workshop on Mathematical Thinking (Wed 14 Nov-Fri 16th Nov 2018)

Mathematics underpins much of the scientific and technological progress of modernity. This workshop will bring together experts to study the conceptual and neurological basis of mathematical thought and creativity, different aspects of which are associated with brain structures evolved for different purposes. We will explore links to machine learning, which plays a critical role as a model for cognition, as well as cognitive psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and pure and applied mathematics. For further information, please visit the workshop website. The conference is part of CARMA's Special Semester on Mathematical Thinking.

At this workshop, we will target discussions at forming new interdisciplinary collaborations and formulating concrete research questions with a view towards major grant applications in the ARC Discovery and linkage programmes, among others. Expected benefits arising from such collaborations include machine learning improvements, computer assistance for mathematical research and other high-level cognitive tasks, and improved insight into mathematics education at all levels.
