Written by Stephen Dodds, Assistant Head of Maths

Maths Week 2017 will be upon us shortly and for the first time it has gone whole school! Every student from Early Years up to Year 13 will be celebrating the wonders of Mathematics between 30th October and 3rd November this term in a STEAM themed week.

Activities will be taking place in lessons, special assemblies will be held and extracurricular events will be arranged around the school. Students between Years 5 and 8 will all be competing in a ‘Hack Challenge’ with a phenomenal prize; the 4 best students will win the chance to go to M.I.T. in Boston, U.S.A. next year as part of the global Nord Anglia STEAM event!

Years 9 to 11 will combine machinery, artistry and imagination in a series of creative challenges. Primary students will be participating in a range of activities from Maths Stories to building challenges. Early Years will also be joining in on the fun and participating in songs, coin trails and Human Hungry Hippos! 

Mr Dodds commented that ‘when I first introduced Maths Week in 2015, it was a week-long celebration of the Wonders of Pi for Secondary students. In subsequent years, the Maths Department held weeks entitled 'Maths Is Beautiful' and 'The Renaissance’. These weeks linked the subject to other fields of academia and encouraged a rounded, resourceful approach to the subject. Every year, it has grown and grown and I am thrilled that this event has gone school-wide for the first time in 2017. I firmly believe that Mathematics is a dynamic and creative subject that can inspire and engage every student.’ #NAEMIT
