Before Easter four of our Year 7 students were chosen to take part in the Royal Institution Maths Masterclasses at Teesside University. Each student was chosen for their effort, enthusiasm and potential in maths.
They attended four Saturday morning sessions, giving up their free time to do so. Studying the maths behind the Rubik Cube, bell ringing, winning the lottery, braille, and structural engineering, the students found the whole experience interesting and they have learnt so much by attending. Each session was led by someone who uses maths in their daily life, many of whom were professors.
To celebrate their commitment and achievement, each of our students were invited to a presentation evening at the University, along with other students from different schools. A massive well done goes to Caitlin, Jacob, Jak and Jacob. They have done Freebrough proud, and were commented on by the organisers for their willingness to give it a go and for getting stuck in.
