This Term pupils and students from Years 11-13 attended a Maths Inspiration Event at the Manchester RNCM Concert Hall. This was an ideal opportunity for the pupils and students to see how the mathematics they study at school links to the exciting applications in the real world.
The speakers this year were Jennifer Rogers, David Acheson and Ben Sparks, with Matt Parker compering. The pupils and students enjoyed hearing about how statistics can be used to keep budget airlines such as Ryan Air in check and were invited to get involved with Music and Mathematical challenges to do with sound vibrations and spirals.
David Acheson demonstrated how Maths is present all around the house and even proved that calculus can be seen in action at Christmas when building a snowman!
