Making Maths @ Manchester is a two-day event for strong year 12 Maths students. Schools and colleges can send up to three students - it is not essential that they are studying Further Maths.
Students will work in teams on challenging maths problems with the guidance of mathematicians and PhD maths students. Once the teams have come up with some insight into the problems they will present their findings to other students. The best presentations will earn prizes!
Students will sleep in halls of residence on the Monday night and there will be social activities including a trip to the Trafford Centre. The cost is £70 and this covers all meals, refreshments, accommodation, etc. For those coming a long distance there is the option to arrive on Sunday and stay in halls on Sunday night at extra cost.
Please download the brochure, application form and further information below. The closing date for applications is 31st May but places are strictly limited.
