Stream: Lean for teaching

Topic: Two workshops

Patrick Massot (Mar 06 2023 at 15:17):

I don't think there have been any announcement here, but there will be two events about teaching using a proof assistant, and Lean in particular: https://sites.google.com/view/learning-maths-with-lean2/ and https://pat2023.icube.unistra.fr/

It isn't in Lean 2, is it?

Adam Topaz (Mar 06 2023 at 16:14):

I assume that it's 2 as opposed to https://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/maths-education/events/2022/learningmathematicswithlean/

Sebastian Ullrich (Mar 06 2023 at 16:25):

According to the website title it's actually Lean -2, which I'm assuming is the new version supporting homotopy type theory

The learning maths with Lean workshop starts in an hour, at . Today we'll have @Gihan Marasingha at , then me at , then @Rob Lewis at and finally @Jeremy Avigad at . Note that the times on the website are in GMT, which is not the current UK time zone, we're right now in BST=GMT+1.

Will these talks be recorded?

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 18 2023 at 13:26):

IIRC I signed something which usually means "yes"

Alex J. Best (Apr 18 2023 at 13:28):

I asked the organisers and was told "yes we are planning to record the talks and post a link to the recordings on the event website."

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 18 2023 at 14:03):

Apparently they will be up on youtube "very soon"

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 19 2023 at 14:06):

Today at the second Learning Maths with Lean conference we have:

@Athina and Paola Iannone talking about their observations of students playing #nng at ,

then some students from Imperial and Exeter reporting on having survived lectures by Gihan and me at ,

then @Kitty Yan and @Gila Hanna talking about "Proving with the Lean theorem prover: The case of transitivity of implication" at ,

and finally @Heather Macbeth talking about her course; her title is " A "calculation-heavy" introduction to proof, with support from Lean" and she's at .

Does anyone have a link handy to this youtube page? (Even if the lectures have not yet been posted, it would be useful to have.)

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 19 2023 at 16:00):

I'm not sure it exists yet.

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 19 2023 at 16:00):

(the lectures haven't even all happened yet)

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 20 2023 at 14:17):

Today starts with @Patrick Massot right now

Kevin Buzzard (Apr 20 2023 at 15:35):

Then @Phil Wood at , and after that it's students sharing their experiences.

I've just asked:

Where will the recorded talks be published? Do you have a YouTube channel I can subscribe to already?

They replied:

We will add them to the Southampton Education YouTube channel but we will email everyone when the talks are uploaded

The YouTube channel they mentioned should be this one.

As a bonus, @Dan Velleman is speaking at I think on his Lean translation of "how to prove it". Zoom link available at https://emap.fgv.br/en/event/how-prove-it-lean
