Many students see maths and science as two difficult subjects to learn and relate to everyday life. Moreover, the school curriculum with its emphasis on discrete subject areas can break down integrated concepts into different theoretical subjects with little cross over between them, making it hard for students to understand the purpose behind learning these subjects.
UCL Computer Science is teaming up with Mathworks to offer a half day session at UCL for GCSE and A-Level Science, Maths and IT teachers. We will use MATLAB as a tool to solve and visualise day-to-day problems, aiming to enhance our understanding in conceptual Maths, science and computing subjects. You will also have the opportunity to use a UCL-developed device called Engduino to collect and visualise real-time data in MATLAB. No prior subject knowledge and experience is required
On the day, you will be given step-by-step instructions and learning materials for the following topics:
Data analysis and visualisation
Physical modelling of a simple pendulum
Integration with Engduino accelerometer data
Engduino temperature data
Probability learning example
Demo to use MATLAB with Raspberry-Pi, and other examples
By the end of the session you will be able to:
Explain to students, with examples, how data analysis and modelling are used in a wide variety of academic and workplace settings
Guide students in modelling data both from publicly available data sets and from low cost hardware
Identify cross-collaborative opportunity between subject areas
The event is free to attend. Please register here. Participants will receive a free Engduino device at the event.
