19/06/09 Exploring Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics held its annual ‘Exploring Mathematics’ conference for A Level students on 19 June. Building on the success of last year’s event, the 2009 conference attracted over 140 students from a range of schools, with many further applications received for places on the oversubscribed day.

Dr Elsholtz says, ‘The conference went really well and was enjoyed by participants and lecturers alike. Given that Mathematics is usually considered a ‘dry’ subject, this day showed it needn’t be. We had enthusiastic lecturers and equally enthusiastic students′. He adds: ‘The day involved 20 Royal Holloway staff and it is because of their help and commitment that the event was so successful’.
