Maths at DCU
6th Class
Monday, October 14, 2019 (All day)

As part of Maths Week 2019, 6th Class travelled to The Helix Theatre in DCU to see author Kjartan Poskitt.

Kjartan wrote the 35 books in the Murderous Maths series. The books have been published in over 25 countries and are aimed at children aged 8 and above. They teach maths, spanning from basic arithmetic to relatively complex concepts such as the quadratic formula and trigonometry.
The trip itself was great fun. Kjartan is a real entertainer and showed us lots of ‘maths tricks’ and told us lots of jokes. He proved that maths doesn’t have to be boring and how it comes into everyday life. His website is www.murderousmaths.co.uk and we can’t wait to try out some of the great activities!!
