This will be a talk and interactive discussion led by John Mason, Professor Emeritus from the Open University and Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Oxford.
The case will be made that Multiplication is NOT repeated addition, though repeated addition is of course an instance of multiplication. Participants will be invited to engage in tasks which expose some of the mathematical subtleties of multiplication, looking in particular at scaling and the contexts in which it is, and is not commutative.
Refreshments will be served from 16:15
