Numbers are easy, right? The first mathematics we learn has to do with numbers. But numbers are also one of the most mysterious things we study. In this workshop, students will look at one way of taming very large numbers and use it to explore deep connections between parts of mathematics that look completely separate. They will also ask the question ‘How many numbers are there?’, and discover that answering ‘Infinitely many!’ is only the start of the story…
Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a calculator.
The Mathematics Summer School workshops are based on Ri Mathematics Masterclasses. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
