Be a Maths student for the day

Date: 21-Feb-2020

Location: University of Sheffield campus

Time: 9.45am-3.15pm

Target year group: Y12 and Y13

Information and benefits of attending this event: Our taster days have been designed to give A Level mathematicians the chance to experience what it's like to study mathematics and statistics at university.

We'll introduce you to areas of mathematics you might not have explored before, tell you about some of the most interesting puzzles you can use mathematics to solve, and maybe get you thinking about mathematics in a completely different way.

The day will include talks by our lecturers, who can give you useful mathematics tips and advice on applying for your degree. You'll also be able to learn more about studying at the University of Sheffield and explore our campus.
