Virtual Plus: Online Courses for Young People

Potential Plus UK’s vPlus courses offer exciting online experiences for children and young people with high learning potential.

All workshops will take place over Zoom.  You will be sent a meeting ID and password to your registered email address at least one hour before the first session is due to start. If you have not received a link at that stage, please email amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org.

Please note that the age guidance on all sessions already accommodates the higher ability of children with high learning potential. If you are still not sure what age group to put your child into, contact amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org before booking.

Unless indicated on the individual session, workshops are charged at £30 per series.

Please book a ticket for every child who will be in attendance at the session

July Sessions

Tuesday

maths numbers in a decreasing circle

Age Guidance 9-11 Years

Mathematical Detectives (4 Sessions)

Aileen Hoare is Chair of Northwest Gifted and Talented and a regular presenter at Potential Plus UK events for many years. We have come to expect challenges, problems and points of mathematical interest from Aileen with a very personalised response to the group.  This group of sessions is a repeat of the May sessions, please do not sign up for these if you have already attended the previous sessions.

Tickets are for a group booking of 4 sessions. There are no individual session tickets. Please note that you must book a ticket for every child who will be in attendance at the session.

The first session will run on Tuesday June 30th at 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm, other sessions in the series will run on Tuesdays 11.00 am -12.00pm from July 7th-21st.

Series Programme

Focusing on challenging mathematical problem solving and deeper thinking, children will have the opportunity to construct and develop their own understanding of mathematics; making links and connections between concepts. They will develop and enhance their ability to use their mathematical knowledge appropriately, flexibly and creatively and to apply it in new and unfamiliar situations.

These sessions will be challenging and are designed to make ‘their brains hurt’

 Monday 30th June. 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm. Number Puzzles, Challenges and Investigations

Tuesday  7th July. 11.00 am. Algebraic Puzzles

Tuesday 14th July. 11.00 am. All About Geometry

Age Guidance 9-11 Years

Further Mathematical Detectives (4 Sessions)

This course costs £30.00 for the group of 4 sessions.

These four sessions are specifically for those who have already participated in at least three of the original vPlus Mathematical Detectives sessions with Aileen Hoare. To benefit from the sessions, children should enjoy a mathematical conundrum and the investigative process. The focus will be on exploration of mathematics rather than focusing on finding the solution.

Tickets are for a group booking of 4 sessions. There are no individual session tickets. Please note that you must book a ticket for every child who will be in attendance at the session.

The sessions in this series will run Monday-Thursday at 2pm during the week 3rd-6th August.
