Year 10 Students Experience Mathematics in the real world

On Tuesday 17th March seven high attaining students visited Salford University for an exposure to A levels Mathematics and to develop their experiences of Mathematics in the real world.

It started off with a series of problem solving activities; some were very challenging but credit to the pupils for trying and persevering towards a solution.

They then moved on to exposure of mechanics, one of the A level topics and performed an experiment that a typical post-16 pupil would do.

After a tour of the campus, there was then a fantastic discussion around Mathematics in the Simpsons. This was interesting and detailed that whenever there is Maths involved, the numbers involved are rarely random, but often have a very mathematical meaning (due to many of the Simpsons writers/creators having maths degree, PhD, etc).
