DELVE INTO DIMENSIONS: A HANDS-ON MATH WORKSHOP
Teacher | Researcher | Social Worker
Saurabh is a teacher, researcher and social worker with research experience at IIT Delhi. He has worked as a fellow at Teach for India (TFI) and has done sewa for three years at Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad. He has now dedicated his life to making education fun, relevant to daily life, and research oriented, while empowering children to take charge of their own learning through work and hands-on practice.
The world is full of obvious things, which nobody by any chance ever observes.
- Arthur Conan Doyle
Why do architectural structures use triangles in their anatomy? And why are honeycombs hexagonal? When choosing a fair dice, would gamers pick a 5-sided or a 6-sided one? What can you possibly make with matchsticks and some plasticine?
Delve into the world of dimensions from 2D to 3D, as you discover answers to real world questions. Recognize the simplicity behind seemingly complex mathematical concepts by engaging in exploratory and hands-on activities. And find out how and why polygons and polyhedrons pervade our environment – from forms in nature, to architecture, to their use in mathematical 3D modelling.
Explore through activities. Apply concepts creatively. And internalize through implementation.
Introduction to the surrounding environment
Discovering different types of dimensions
