Maths Webinar 21st January

Posted: January 16th, 2020

On Tuesday 21st January at 3.30-4.30 maths will be working with the UKMT to bring you the first ever maths webinar.

This webinar will introduce modular arithmetic, a beautiful and powerful way of thinking that is important in number theory, and more broadly in mathematics, computer science and cryptography (it’s an amazing opportunity if you are planning on going into one of these fields).

We’ll explore multiplication tables, looking for patterns and structure, and will think about how modular arithmetic is connected to some UKMT questions. Participants will be encouraged to experiment for themselves, so please be prepared with pen and paper!

No prior knowledge of modular arithmetic will be necessary, but those who have encountered modular arithmetic before can still enjoy investigating multiplication tables. Currently, we are opening places to year 9-11. If you are interested in taking part, please let Miss Hunt or Mr Mason know.
