Keen to take a walk through the beautiful University of Waikato campus and work out real-life maths problems? Then the Maths Eyes Waikato trail is for you!
The trail serves as a platform for adults and children, teachers and students, and community groups to share their maths eyes. It will enable everyone to start to recognise mathematics in their everyday life.
A total of 16 signs, that display activities across different levels of ability, will point out features in the landscape and encourage trail walkers to think about the mathematics in their environment and work out real-life maths problems.
The trail experience can be enhanced by connecting to the Maths Eyes Waikato Chat Bot, through the Facebook Messenger App. The interactive Bot acts as a buddy along the trail, answering questions and providing hints.
