Students See Mathematics In A New Light
On Wednesday this week, the entire school was immersed in the world of mathematics. The day was organised and led by our outstanding maths department and involved a number of engaging and brain stimulating activities which challenged our students to apply and extend their numeracy skills. We were joined by maths academics from Oxford, Coventry and Keele Universities, who led some stunning learning activities during the day.
Activities included, collecting sports data for statistical analysis, discovering mathematical theorems With a juggling academic from Keele University, calculating reaction times in science experiments, manufacturing products using shape, space and measure, a lecture in quadratic
