The aim of our masterclasses is to continue motivating children to think beyond the school curriculum by featuring world-class speakers.  Speakers present an overview of the topic and at the same time explore the application of the subject in the real-world.

Children and adults will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the talk.

Join us at this unique enrichment event featuring exceptional mathematicians at a world-leading university.

 

 

About the talks

 

‘Mathematical Magic’ talk by Zoe Griffiths

All magic is based on doing something that seems impossible, but can actually be done by following certain steps. Topics: reverse engineering a magic trick, counting based card tricks, learning a maths card trick. This session will give students the chance to apply and develop their mathematical thinking skills to reverse-engineer magic tricks.

 

 

‘The Juggling Talk’ by Dr Collin Wright

Dr Wright’s talk explores space time theory, synchronous patterns, negative numbers, the Special Theory of Relativity, numerical sequencing and the relevance of mathematical modelling. Disguised as an entertaining description of juggling and the Site Swap notation, the presentation by Dr Colin Wright is really about science and mathematics, how they work, what they mean, and why they’re important. The talk has been given in locations as diverse as New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta, Washington, Vancouver, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Ireland, The Isle of Man, China, Brunei, and all over mainland UK.
