Woodbridge School Year 10 Maths Feast in Cambridge

Year 10 Maths Feast

22 Apr 15

After successfully winning a regional round at the start of the year, the Year 10 team consisting of Emily Barker, Kitty Chang Leu, Abigail Crane and Gabriella Zins were invited to the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Mathematical Sciences for the Year 10 Maths Feast, Final Celebration Day.

The group solved challenging problems on combination locks, the history of mathematics and origami as well as attending a lecture on set theory where the content was later tested on.

As this was a celebration day of maths there was no overall winner but Woodbridge did beat all the other top schools to win the round on set theory and were presented with a book on numbers for this fantastic achievement.

In the morning Mr Trett arranged for a tour around the colleges of Cambridge and attached is a photo of the group at the Mathematical Bridge crossing the River Cam (The arrangement of timbers is a series of tangents that describe the arc of the bridge).
