Eddie "Woos" Students at Orange High
Eddie Woo is a mathematic internet sensation with his Wootube videos and he is visiting schools throughout the Central West to show a different side of maths.
Eddie visited Orange High School earlier in the week and prompted kids to think about what their first thought was when thinking of Maths.
Most kids answered with numbers, problem solving, patterns and how things work. Eddie then continued to explain how he wants people to think of maths as playful, fun and a collaboration.
Chad Bliss, Orange High School Principal said, “Basically he is just doing a number of different presentations, so we have Year 7-10 students doing some stuff around how we make maths fun and some extension masterclasses for our Year 11-12. It is all about how we get Maths to be more engaging and enjoyable for students.
“It is a great opportunity to have somebody like Eddie come and work with our students and we are very grateful to have all of the other schools here with us. I think you will find that he is very inspiring”.
After spending a few days in Orange Eddie will then be heading to Dubbo, as well as visiting the smaller towns such as Tottenham, Trundle, Tullamore and Yeoval.
A wonderful opportunity for Orange and the region to be able to learn from such a talented individual.
