Year 12 Mathematical Modelling Day

This news from Mrs Fairbairn:

“On Tuesday, eight of our Year 12’s took part in a Mathematical Modelling day at the University of Manchester.  In the morning, they were introduced to some of the research areas undertaken by postgraduate students in the university and after lunch, they had an opportunity to work on a related problem solving task.  The day concluded with each group giving a presentation to all the other attendees, outlining how they worked on their task and explaining the maths involved.  Topics included x-ray analysis, cryptography and queue analysis. 

A challenging day was had by all.”
