EXPEDItiONS

of the future mathematicians programme

Future Mathematicians Programme activities are called Expeditions. Each Expedition is coordinated by a Champion with the help of their Expedition Crew. The coordination consists of the following components:

Mapping

Every mathematical expedition has a map that is designed by an “architect”

Site

Physical site where the expedition takes place, e.g., name of school or university campus

Resources

Resources required to run an expedition

Exploration

Mathematical exploration activity with learners/students facilitated by a “pilot”

Reflection

This is the final stage of an expedition, which includes reporting on the exploration activity
