Exploring Maths

Every year, we host an Exploring Maths event at Royal Holloway, aimed at students taking A-Level Mathematics or an equivalent qualification (and their teachers). We hope to increase the students’ enjoyment and understanding by illustrating the beauty, breadth and power of Mathematics.

During the day, there are mathematical talks, short quizzes and campus tours.

In 2016 talks were given by:- 

Dr Simon Singh - The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets

Dr Colin Wright - Juggling:Theory and Practice,

Professor James McKee - Mathematics at University

There is also a session specifically for teachers to see how the Further Maths network can support them. Students will also have an informal chance to meet current undergraduates and staff at Royal Holloway.

Exploring Maths this year will take place on Monday 26 June 2017.  Details and invitations have now been sent out to schools.  Enquiries can be made to the Department via email - exploringmaths@rhul.ac.uk  or by phone on 01784 443093.

Take a look at our previous programmes to gain an insight into what Exploring Maths is about.
