Learning Mathematics with LEAN
This workshop is funded by the London Mathematical Society (LMS).
Join us at Loughborough University for a workshop about using the automated theorem prover Lean (https://leanprover.github.io) to teach first year pure mathematics. Speakers will talk about their experiences of using Lean for teaching and the resources they created. There will also be the opportunity for hands-on sessions to try some of resources designed for students. You can join the workshop here at Loughborough or online - but the hands-on sessions will not be streamed. If you plan to come in person bring your laptop with you!
