Chika's Test for divisibility by 7, patterning and coding

Presented by: Ron Lancaster
Saturday, February 11, 2023
9:00 AM HKT

In 2019, Chika Olifi, a student at the Westminster School in London, made a discovery on his own of a remarkable test for divisibility by 7. In this session we will explore Chika's test, proofs of it and strange patterns related to his test that can be uncovered with the help of coding. We will examine divisibility tests for other prime numbers that when viewed together create patterns that are surprising and not easy to explain. Join Ron Lancaster to learn more about why divisibility tests should still be taught in 2023.

Resilience, Ganas and Problem Solving

Presented by: Ron Lancaster
Saturday, February 25, 2023
9:00 AM HKT

The focus of this webinar will be on strategies to help our students become more resilient so that they stick with problems and do not give up easily. We all know that the internet has made it too easy for students to look up solutions to problems. One way of encouraging students not to do this is to assign problems that are engaging and that have a sweet spot - not trivial and not so complicated that the work overwhelms students. Another way is to rethink how we assess solutions done by students and what we value as teachers. We will examine a collection of puzzles, problems and games that foster resilience without too much frustration.
