The Maths Debate Generator (100 Debates and Discussions + Randomiser) [P4C] [Cross-Curricular] [Fun]

Created by a Philosophy teacher and experienced formal debater in collaboration with his colleagues in the Maths department.

This PPT file contains 100 debates and discussion relevant to the study of mathematics and, especially, ‘The Philosophy of Mathematics’ (allowing teachers to bring P4C [philosophy for children] into the Maths classroom). The presentation is complete with exciting animated graphics to foster engagement!

The file contains a randomiser slide, allowing a random debate topic to be generated.

Each debate slide asks students to move from one side of the room or the other to make their position clear: teachers should then use questioning to foster a debate between students, encouraging them to present reasons for their choice and defend their position.
