Past Event: The 4th Creative Mathematical Sciences Communication Conference (CMSC).
Where: Hosted by The Learning Connexion School of Art and Creativity. 182 Eastern Hutt Road, Taita, Lower Hutt, Wellington.
When: 21st - 22nd July 2018.
‘Everything Mathematical can and should be intuitive, hands-on and understandable by 10 year olds’.
‘Computational thinking - Computer sciences unplugged’.
The CMSC is a gathering of professionals who aim to extend the boundaries of maths and science.
The CMSC aims to expand the relationship between mathematics and art. Every creative step can be examined as a series of extraordinary mathematical steps upon which the opportunity for innovation awaits. Invited are teachers, researchers, students from all fields from Maths, Science, Engineering, Visual arts and Theatre. The CSMC aims to be inclusive, academically accessible to anyone interested in the relationship with the future of Maths and creativity.
If you’re an artist, is it possible that you are also a brilliant mathematician who happens to use a different set of instruments to calculate? Or, are you a scientist or mathematician with a natural eye for aesthetics and wondered where that comes from? The sessions included discussion of the future design of mathematical operations in schools and explored collaborative opportunities between polarising disciplines.
The CMSC was hosted by The Learning Connexion School of Art and Creativity. The Learning Connexion prides itself as a space where traditional and non-traditional creative processes are nurtured and students evolve their own creative sustainable practices.
