Maths Inspiration at St Swithun's School

Published Tuesday 9th of April 2013 11:09:07 AM

St Swithun�s hosted a �Maths Inspiration� event on the 20th March. The performing arts centre Harvey Hall was packed to the rafters with students from schools and colleges from a wide area, as well as over 100 St Swithun's girls from Years 11 - 13, to hear talks by three highly entertaining speakers.

The �Stand-up mathematician� Matt Parker, from the University of London, delighted the audience with his wit whilst discussing the mathematics behind the technology we take for granted.

Chris Budd, from the University of Bath, addressed the issue of global warming from a mathematical standpoint and Rob Eastaway, director of Maths Inspiration, examined the link between mathematics and psychology.

Inspiring and enjoyable, what more could you want to finish off the mathematics term?
