Maths equals a great experience for Andover College students

Maths Inspiration is one of the largest maths enrichment programmes for teenagers in the UK. It’s a chance to experience the UK’s most inspiring maths speakers live, in big venues, presenting mathematics in the context of exciting, real-world situations.

The event’s four speakers brought Maths to life with talks about ‘Maths on the back of an envelope’, ‘The Shape of Escape’ and ‘The Greatest Maths Mistakes Ever’.

One of our students said ‘It was very entertaining, funny and inspiring and It was good to see how maths is used in all aspects of life.”

Our students also took part in the UK Senior Maths Challenge. The Mathematical Challenges aim to stimulate mathematical problem solving.

Taking part in the Mathematical Challenges is a rewarding experience for all students and the highest performers in the Challenge are awarded either bronze, silver or gold certificates depending on how well they did. We are proud to announce that 8 of our students were awarded Bronze and 2 were awarded Silver.

Maths Lecturer, Claire, said: “This is a great achievement for our 1st year maths students and we are proud of all of their efforts!”
