Using Coloured Counters to Teach Prime Numbers: My Experience at MathsConf31

Using Coloured Counters to Teach Prime Numbers: My Experience at MathsConf31

In March, I had the pleasure of attending MathsConf31, an annual conference organized by La Salle Complete Maths. One of the sessions that stood out to me was Jason Gottfried’s presentation on using coloured counters to teach prime numbers, which was both inspiring and innovative. As a tutor, I found it extremely useful in engaging my students and making math fun. I was even invited to talk about my experience on Dave Taylor’s Teaching Together podcast.
