Fourth Years attend Maths enrichment event

The UKMT invited fifty able young mathematicians from schools across Hampshire to attend an enrichment event held at St Swithun’s School over two days on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th October. William Rose, William Atherton and Adam Brodzki from the Fourth Year attended the two day event giving them the opportunity to investigate many new mathematical topics. The pupils learned about how to make personalised polynomials using Lagrange interpolation, looked at different types of infinities and investigated the mathematics of the Battle of Trafalgar. Much to their delight there were also lots of challenges with chocolate prizes available!
