International Maths Day

Wednesday 14th March is international Maths day. Students celebrated the day with a form time event celebrating mathematics.

Students started off by guessing where certain mathematical accomplishments took place in history – some are further back in history than you may think!

Then students got to enjoy a presentation of when maths goes wrong in the real world and people make mathematical mistakes, from planes running out of fuel because of a conversion error to mathematically impossible football.

Finally, students can take away a puzzle and complete as much as they can for a chance to win £10 in Amazon vouchers. The challenge is a “crossnumber” puzzle, similar rules to a crossword puzzle, but with numbers.

The puzzle is fiendish and I encourage the whole family to contribute to the puzzle.

Entries need to be sent to Mr Price in Ma8 by Friday 31st March.
