Event description

Description


Mathematics has a profound influence on our lives – perhaps without us even noticing.


Come along to a fun, non-technical talk, where Kit Yates will celebrate British Science Week by explaining why maths matters in everyone's life.


Through fascinating stories and examples, Kit will show how maths is important in everything from fighting disease outbreaks, and criminal justice to everyday dilemmas such as choosing the best restaurant.

This is a talk packed full of true stories of life-changing events in which the use (or abuse) of maths has played a critical role.

Used wisely, mathematics can save your life. Used unwisely, it can ruin it!

Join us for this after school talk to find out how maths is shaping your life.
