MORE than 30 of our Year 11-13 King’s Ely Senior Mathematicians attended the Maths Inspiration event at West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge just before the end of term.
The group enjoyed the following talks – ‘Maths on the Back of an Envelope’ by Rob Eastaway, ‘Flying with Maths’ by Hilary Costello and ‘Patterns, Predictions and Juggling’ by Colin Wright – all of whom are influential figures in the Mathematics world.
Maths Inspiration is a national programme of interactive Mathematics lecture shows for students aged 14-17.
Head of Mathematics at King’s Ely Senior, Audrienne Bezzina, said: “All of the students and staff came back to school buzzing after the event! I hope the students now have more of an idea of how learning Maths can help them significantly with their future careers.”
