A group of 20 students from S5/Y11 and L6 attended an excellent event called Maths Inspiration at the Crucible in Sheffield, where they heard some inspirational speakers talk about their specialist areas of mathematics.
The topics included the behaviour of cicadas and bees, the statistical significance of medical trials results and the maths behind a snooker shot. This meant, as a bonus, a chance to play snooker at The Crucible!
