FREE Year 10 Enrichment Day

Scunthorpe

Overview

A day of stimulating mathematical activities for year 10 students designed to help students see the usefulness and fun that maths has beyond the GCSE maths specification. The emphasis of the day will be that maths can actually be enjoyable as well as challenging and that studying maths beyond GCSE can open doors to a wide and diverse range of both university courses and job opportunities. Throughout the day students will attend three different workshop sessions. The workshop sessions will consider "The Many Applications Of Mathematics", "Taxi For Geometry"and "Can Mathematics Really Save Your Life"? (based on a true story). 

Who will benefit from attending?

We hope that the event will appeal to middle ability students and above who will find the content accessible and stimulating. You may see this event as a way of rewarding your hard working and conscientious students who don't usually get the opportunity to represent the school. It would be great if you could bring equal numbers of boys and girls.
