As part of the school-wide Loyola programme 10 select year 12 students recently travelled to Butterworth Hall, at the University of Warwick, for five wide-ranging and interactive university style maths lectures.

These introduced students to mathematical concepts including mathematics in music, living is a risky business, fighting disease with maths, the quest to find prime numbers and patterns and predictions. The day was highly interactive and engaging, illustrating the wonder and applications of maths to the next generation of budding mathematicians. The students had a great day and got to see what university life is like.
