Content

There will be three 40 minute sessions:

Shot in the Dark Mathematics (Tom Rainbow): How asking the right questions and thinking ‘outside of the box’ whilst applying mathematics you know already in situations you’ve never even considered is a powerful combination.

The power of arithmetic (Rob Eastaway): How handy can it be to be able to do maths without a calculator?

What happens in maths after GCSEs? (Ben Sparks): What options do you have in education after the age of 16? What does mathematics after GCSE actually look like? What effect will it have on your career choices?

We will also look into how maths is used in a variety of careers and there will be an opportunity to chat with AMSP and Royal Geographical Society staff and take home some resources.

Eligibility

Each school can bring eight students along with up to two Maths, Geography, Science (or other interested) teachers.
