Q1 introducing Education in the Roman Empire to 1st years by doing Roman numerals maths equations. Something new and if it works maybe every year will introduce it this way. #mathsweek #romans #edchatie #latetotheparty

Beautiful maths in colour representation. Using 1 Byte (8bits) you have 256 possible values (0-255). Using 3 Bytes : 1 each for Red, Green and Blue you get 16777216 possible colours! More than the human eye can distinguish. #mathsweek #edchatie #Coding twitter.com/istone_irene/s…

@mathsweek Definitely part of the problem. Crucial to have teachers passionate about maths and its applications teaching imho but also important to have teachers who can appreciate how people struggle with concepts that seem straightforward to them #edchatie

@conpower This really does test their understanding Conor but so many don’t make the connection #edchatie

@conpower Adding and subtracting in the other number systems really tests students understanding of how they perform addition and subtraction in the decimal system. Many have shortcuts that don’t translate #edchatie

@conpower @mathsweek @fboss Great algorithm to work through with students - convert infix to RPN abd then evaluate the RPN expression #edchatie

#edchatie In that video I shared it had one theory that calculators follow English syntax: Subject, Verb Object / 'Bob eats burger' / 2+3. The calculator works much in RPN which would be subject, object, verb / 'Bob burger eats' / 23+ like Japanese syntax. twitter.com/fboss/status/1…

#edchatie #mathsweek @mathsweek Hey @fboss you seem to have taken a shine to operator precedence. Here is a great video showing you why you don't need those rules if you use Reverse Polish Notation. You can get RPN calculators they are AWESOME 😃 youtu.be/tCHxGiia0IA

Did a fun mystery activity with students today as part of the school climate change week. Students had to work out why flooding might occur in Wexford. Resource available here: mrdowdican.ie/geographyresou… #edchatie pic.twitter.com/jgk6vNziDA

#edchatie #mathsweek I love doing number systems in coding. Teaching students about binary, hex and octal. It really blows their mind that the decimal system is not the only show in town!! We should introduce it in primary 'now kids its time for your F times tables'

@fboss Not sure what our even if there was any reasoning (I'm not a maths teacher). There are different approaches to mathematical statements like Polish(Prefix) notation where you don't need to have this rule. #edchatie

@katzb21 @fboss #edchatie the o is actually orders as in powers or square roots.

fboss @fboss

@conpower yes - but why do you have to do the multiply bit ahead of the addition bit? What's the reasoning behind that, I'm wondering? #edchatie #mathsweek #mathsweek2018

Conor Power @conpower

@fboss #edchatie three ways of saying the same same thing.

fboss @fboss

@conpower I was just wondering though - why multiply before adding? What's the reason? @Mathsweek #mathsweek #edchatie

Maths Week Ireland @mathsweek

To stir it up with Q4. Should we offer inducements for grads to do maths teaching #edchatie @fboss
