A Level Maths Students Visit Mathsfest 2019

8 Feb 19

As the sun dawned on Tuesday 5 February, the A Level maths sets were already on their way to Piccadilly, London, to visit the annual Maths Fest, a day full of different brilliant maths talks. Talks ranged from pairs of primes, to why 1+2+3+4… = -1/12, and many more, with students enjoying lectures from many different experts all at the top of their field.

The students learned about why harmonies sound so good (something to do with Pythagoras), and why trusting everything to algorithms might not be as safe as we thought.

Overall the excursion was very well received, and all of the students came away with a new respect and deeper understanding for the fun side of maths.
