Maths Inspiration is returning to Nottingham after a successful visit last March. Bookings are now open for the event on 25th March 2010 at The Playhouse, Nottingham.
Maths Inspiration is one of the largest maths enrichment programmes for teenagers in the UK. It's a chance for Year 11s and sixth formers to experience the UK's most inspiring maths speakers, live in big venues, presenting mathematics in the context of exciting, real-world situations. There is always a lively Q&A session at the end of each show.
The planned talks at the Nottingham event are: "How to Build an Olympic Stadium", "When Maths Meets Psychology" and "The Maths of the Rock Guitar". There are two sessions to choose from: 9.45-12.30 and 1.00-3.45.
The content is ideal for Year 12s and for more motivated Year 11s. Tickets are £6 per attendee with one adult entitled to free entry for every 10 students.
The Maths Inspiration event at Nottingham is sponsored by emda (East Midlands Development Agency).
