Maths is your Future

Falmouth

Overview

An engaging day with plenty of mathematical activity as well as information to motivate and enthuse your students. The day will also aim to inspire girls to continue studying maths beyond GCSE and to consider the benefits of a STEM based degree.

Aims

  • To stimulate interest in Mathematics outside of the curriculum
  • To show students the range of careers and opportunities available by studying maths
  • To foster a positive attitude to solving problems in mathematics

Who will benefit from attending?

This day is aimed at Year 10 students who are aiming for Higher Level GCSE Mathematics, and who are considering or need encouraging to consider Mathematics as an option for Level 3.

Content

Students will participate in a series of hands on workshops throughout the day, gather information about options for Level 3 mathematics courses and hear about possible career choices.

Materials and Equipment

We would expect students to have the usual school mathematical equipment, including a scientific calculator.

Other Information

This event will help to address the following Gatsby Benchmarks:

  • Benchmark 2 - Learning from career and labour market information
  • Benchmark 4 - Linking curriculum learning to careers
  • Benchmark 7 - Encounters with further and higher education

 

We are inviting schools to bring up to fifteen students. This event is focused on encouraging students, and in particular girls, to consider Maths beyond GCSE and STEM careers.  We would therefore encourage schools to bring at least as many girls as boys to the event.

Places are limited and early applications are advised.
