Maths in Action
Last Thursday, Dr Pellenc and Miss Kubisch took 11 upper senior Maths and Science scholars to London to experience Maths in Action.
The day comprised of five informative, engaging and interactive sessions designed to really inspire the students attending.
Some of the topics covered were:
- Can we believe everything we read in the newspapers? How the media misuse, misinterpret and abuse statistics
- Enigma and the world of code breaking - a look into the fascinating history and mathematics of codes and code breaking
- Lateral thinking in mathematics - exploring problems from a different angle and challenging assumptions
This was a wonderful day for our Maths and Science scholars, highlighting every day uses of maths and really bringing it to life.
