INTO Congress Waterfront Hall,Belfast, 17th to 19th April, 2017

The Primary Teachers whom I met were very enthusiastic about the simplicity and safety of the polyMath. Some told of accidents with the sharp compass point. I received an invitation to exhibit at the Monaghan INTO Education   Fair which will be held in the Conference Centre, Four Seasons Hotel Monaghan Town on June 1st. I’m looking forward to the event.

ISTA Conference Maynooth University 8th April, 2017

Since many Science teachers also teach maths there was an appreciative audience for the polyMath.

 

The Education Show 16th, 17th, 18th March, 2017

NEC Birmingham, U.K.

This was a very big event with teachers from every level of school attending – among them maths teachers. There were teachers from other countries there also. As well as to various parts of the U.K.,polyMaths have gone to Iceland and to India and will be going to Nigeria.

It was a very good experience and it was great to see the appreciation of such a diverse group of teachers for the one-instrument geometry set that can do so much and that is small, safe, and sturdy.

 

Maths Counts  3rd, 4th March, 2017. Maynooth University

Visit to  Scoil Mhuire, Coolcotts, Wexford

Thanks very much to the Principal and staff who  welcomed me into Scoil Mhuire. It’s a lovely school.

A special thanks to Ms Juggins and her great sixth class for giving me their class time.

With their help I decided on the size of the Demonstration PolyMath.

I demonstrated all the functions of the polyMath to the class.

The pupils had already studied angles so they had no trouble using the polyMath as a protractor.

The slightly enlarged centre-point holes in the polyMaths meant that there were no broken pencil points when drawing the circle.

The response to the polyMath was very enthusiastic and it was pronounced to be ‘cool’!

Congratulations to Ellie and Lily, who were sitting beside each other  and who each won a polyMath in the guess- a- number raffle. I really enjoyed my visit.

 

 

 

Larger centre-point holes in the polyMath

A  blunt pencil or a ballpoint pen can now be used for the centre-of-circle holes in the polyMaths ordered from now on.

If you would like to enlarge the holes in a polyMath you already have you can do so very simply by drilling with a 2 mm bit.

Dragons’ Den 1st May 2016

Brigid McBride - Polymath (1)

The polyMath will be featured on this episode of the series.

After the programme

Despite being very , and I mean very, anxious before filming I was amazed to find that all my nervousness evaporated when I stood before the DRAGONS.

I really enjoyed my time in the DEN!

There was a great response to the programme.  Lots of communications arrived – just to wish me well or give advice or help – the kindness of strangers!

The orders flooded in  and l had a busy time sending out charts and polyMaths.

Thanks a lot to everyone I met from Shinawil.  They were all brilliant!

Polymath Ltd exhibited at the INTO Congress in the Lyrath Hotel Conference Centre on April, 23rd. Meeting the teachers was very enjoyable and interesting.

The polyMath was demonstrated at the stand and the response from the teachers to this new all-in-one instrument  was very positive.

An extra use as a reading aid was suggested by some of the delegates. This is something which hadn’t been thought of before. Thanks for the idea! I’m passing it on.

For those who don’t know ‘deadly’ in Monaghan is high praise!
