Webinar on Mathematical Comic: The Beginning of the Adventure

The Webinar on Mathematical Comic: The Beginning of the Adventure took place on Friday, November 19th, 2021 from 12 pm until 1 pm, with Pedro Martinez, math teacher and creator of the mathematical comic “Mathland,” as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker told us the story of Alan, who is a young boy who does not like mathematics until one day, he mysteriously finds himself trapped in a magical world called “Mathland” where mathematics is the key to returning home. Pedro Martinez explained that in his adventure, Alan meets peculiar characters like Zero and the magician Algebra, who help him in his journey. The speaker also mentioned how Alan’s adventure began and described how we can use the mathematical comic in a classroom. This virtual event was co-organized by the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME).
