DESCRIPTION:Did you know that people knew about magic squares
3000 years ago? In this workshop\, we will use his
torical examples of magic squares to give students
a sense of the long history of maths and how it h
as been part of different cultures. Questions we w
ill consider include:\n -Why is the turtle in the
graphic of this workshop?\n -Can you make a magic
square of any size\, or are \n there some which
aren't possible?\n -What is an anti-magic square\,
and how do they help \n us investigate magic squ
ares?\n -How can you predict what the row/column/d
iagonal \n total will be for a magic square?\n -H
ow do you construct your own magic squares?\n
