Maths in Action Feb 2020

Reported by Kazki Fairman (year13)

On Friday February 28, we departed the Chatham site at 0700 for a trip to the Emmanuel Center in Central London for an excellent "Maths in Action" day.  The day was filled with several inspiring and fascinating lectures about mathematics, ranging from how song lyrics include bad maths, to how statistical analysis can aid cyber security from hackers and their malware. My favourite lecture was by Colin Wright, who demonstrated how patterns do not always continue as expected, and demonstrated how juggling patterns can be very mathematical. He was also a GLORIOUSLY TALENTED juggler! Overall the day was money well spent and it definitely offered all of us in the Year 13 Further Mathematics class (+ Brennan), an inspiring view in how mathematics is pretty much everywhere in everything we do, instead of simply the classroom. I would highly recommend these sorts of events for Mathematics, but also for other subject departments where it can be intriguing for students as well.
