A Calculated Step to Further Maths

FMSPMATHSMarch2016

Students in Year 10 and 11 were encouraged to take Maths further recently as a result of a variety of engaging activities within the Maths Department. 
Monday 7 March 2016 started with a visit from Patrick Cobb and Ben Sparks, from The Further Maths Support Programme (FMSP), who were invited to run interactive workshops with Year 10 and 11 students to demonstrate what Maths would look like if they opted to take it further. 
Our budding Mathematicians had to make some quick calculations as they competed to answer questions to win points for their team.  

The FMSP work with schools and colleges to support and promote the study of AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. It is supported by the Department for Education and managed by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), an independent educational charity.

FMSPMATHSCHALLENGE2016Later the same week, four Year 10 students went to The Commonweal School to take part in the Year 10 Maths Feast. The competition provided an enriching and enjoyable activity for students to work together to solve challenging and interesting mathematical problems. The rounds are all designed to test a wide range of mathematical and communication skills.          The BFS Team get to grips with some unfamiliar A-level mathematics
