Advanced Maths Support Programme at Manchester University

On Friday last week, eight of our Year 12 students attended an Advanced Maths Support Programme event at Manchester University.  The students attended workshops that showcased some of the diverse career opportunities available to students after studying a maths-rich undergraduate degree. 
Topics ranged from predicting the weather using Markov chains, to generating Mathematical Friezes using the Diamond rule and exploring their link with Catalan numbers and the Golden ratio. 
An inspiring day which gave much ‘food for thought’.
