Geometry and the Imagination

In this highly interactive talk, Fran Watson introduces students to some geometrical visualisation, exploration and origami to help develop mathematical reasoning. You can find versions of the paper-folding activities Fran introduces in the Modular Making collection.

This talk was originally given to an audience of Y12 A-level Maths students (aged 16-17). The talk was part of an enrichment event with a particular focus on helping students to develop their mathematical thinking. The talk was recorded at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge, on 8 July 2016.
