SMSAS to host Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses for Year 9 students this Spring

Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses

The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Kent is hosting three Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses for Year 9 pupils this Spring.

The three classes, taking place online on Saturday 29 January, 26 February and 12 March 2022, aim to open the eyes of young people to the excitement, beauty and value of mathematics.

They offer students in-depth investigations of topics in mathematics combining theory with interactive exploration. We aim to challenge students who are well-motivated and curious about Mathematics and may well be inspired to carry on studying Mathematics beyond GCSE.

The Masterclass topics are: Fractals and the patterns of nature, A doughnut and a cup of tea, and Game on: the maths behind game shows.

Attendance at Masterclasses is via teacher nomination only and places are limited. Students who are interested in attending Masterclasses should ask their teachers to contact us at:
