Maths Team Challenge
Year 10 mathematicians were entertained by two lectures by leading academics and then participated in an exciting maths team challenge with students from 12 different schools.
The lecturers were: Dr Jennifer Roger of Oxford University, who took great pleasure at de-bunking alarmist statistics quoted in the press, and Dr Katie Steckles of Manchester University, who taught them how to square root cube numbers in their heads as a party trick and delved into the hidden maths of technology.
Maths club is on Thursday lunchtime 12:45 to 1:30 in M5 and M6. All are welcome. Maths club provides support for homework, fun activities, logic puzzles, maths games and more.
Pupils wishing to extend and enrich their mathematical learning may be interested in joining The Society of Young Mathematicians (SYMS). It is a society for all young people who enjoy mathematics, whether they are in a primary or secondary school. Members are part of a national organisation which motivates and encourages young mathematicians.
Pupils are also given the opportunity to take part in the United Kingdom Maths Trust Challenge and other team challenges.
