Year 7 Maths Masterclass in Plymouth - 26/01/2017

Posted on: 03/02/2017

Recently, a small band of keen Mathematicians assembled earlier than the usual school time in order to make it in time to Plymouth for the Maths Masterclass.

This is the second year I have been taking Y7s and Y8s for a day at university and this was the first time we were allowed to bring 6 students.

As ever, our host Mrs Jenny Sharp prepared some fine investigations for the students that really brought Maths to life for everyone. In the afternoon, we were treated to some “Mathemagic” and made a magic arrow and two flexagons to take home – great gadgets to entertain our own audiences with.
We had a fantastic time, our students enjoyed their day and their flavour of Maths at university.
