    Theme for second meeting: Whole numbers - a very broad topic!

    Possible activities

    Planning future meetings on topics such as

    About me (Helena Verrill): you might want to know who I am - I'm home schooling Tobi and Florian, aged 5 and 10, but for many years worked professionally as an academic mathematician, teaching up to and including Ph.D. level - this does not necessarily qualify me to teach at lower levels, but I hope we will help you enjoy mathematics. I currently teach part time at Warwick University. I enjoy origami mathematics, and about 20 years ago made a page about some of my designs, which seems not to have died yet.

    Marco Schlichting will also be helping, but since he works full time at Warwick University, most of the work of preparing the meetings, web site, communications, materials, etc, is up to me!
    Marco taught Music Together - a music class for 0-5 year olds - for 7 years, so has quite a bit of experience with teaching young children. Perhaps sometime we can include some music in the maths club!
    Marco will run 2 or three short led sessions for different age groups - these are for parents together with their children. We take a "maths together" approach, similar to the "music together" approach taken in the music class. Even more in home education than otherwise, you are your child's first teacher, and want to be able to do things together, including maths, with young children
