  • Maths Makes a Difference: online webinar for Y12 students

    Date: 
    Tuesday, 2 February 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

    This free interactive webinar for students in Year 12 will explore aspects of maths that make a difference to the world and society.

    Making predictions in an uncertain world

    The future is full of uncertainty, but we still need to make plans and decisions based on the data we have. Where should a hospital invest its resources to allow for changing health needs in a year's time? Should the supermarket order extra ice cream because the summer will be warm and sunny? Should the council road maintenance team get extra gritting salt ready for an icy winter? Making predictions is hard - and maths can help, as we’ll see in this interactive webinar.

    How to book

    This free event is organised jointly with the Mathematics outreach team at the University of Oxford. The live webinar is only open to students at UK-based state-maintained schools, as well as home-educated students. If you are at an independent school or the timings simply don't suit, recordings will be available shortly after the live webinar. You should still register if you want to view the webinars at a later time.

    To book your free place, or to register to view the webinar later, please see the Maths Makes a Difference event page.
