Late last term, a group of our Year 10 and 11 students had the opportunity to be involved in the public talk held by Eddie Woo at the Adelaide Town Hall. Our students asked questions, and then worked on and presented some live maths modelling based on crowd dynamics and data presentation from a survey, to the appreciation of the large audience including a high percentage of maths teachers. In consequence Eddie Woo is planning to visit the ASMS during a visit to Adelaide on the 28 August to engage with our students and staff – stay tuned for details!

Eddie Woo is an Australian mathematics teacher who has reached a worldwide audience through his passionate YouTube lessons. He has since been announced Australia’s Local Hero for 2018, a top 10 finalist for the 2018 Global Teacher Prize and gone on to present throughout Australia.
