Maths Week Ireland
On Friday 20th October a group of Year 13 Further Maths students attended a lecture on 'What have mathematicians done for us' at Queen's University as part of Maths Week Ireland. The lecture was given by Professor Chris Budd and he was very inspirational. He discussed the history of maths as well as giving insight into the fields of research where maths is heavily used. Our students left with a clearer understanding of the importance of maths in everyday life and it got them thinking about potential new and exciting career paths.
