The Magic of Maths

On 11th September, 10 of our most talented year 10 mathematicians attended ‘The Magic of Maths’ at the University of Kent Canterbury.  The event was organised by the Further Mathematics Support Programme which aims to promote the study of Mathematics and Further Mathematics at A level.

Students were engaged in various activities including mathematical braiding, maths and music, maths tricks and the science of juggling.  They experienced excellent presentations from local and national mathematical academics and were looked after by the University’s maths students.  It was a very successful day and the students were able to display and explain their own versions of mathematical braiding in the department at our school Open Evening.
