Today we are hosting a Further Mathematics one-day conference "Let Maths take you further..." at +Cardiff University. 130+ 16 & 17 yos are attending with their teachers. I'm speaking later and +Vincent Knight (bet you can't spot him in the photo!...) is giving some sessions too (http://goo.gl/lJ8MW0) :) Currently they are working on some topology puzzles (based on adventures in flatland)

- No, it was optional +Steve W. Not always as lucky to get large turnouts though given teachers finding it increasingly tricky to be allowed time to take students out of school these days (perversely...) but increase in maths interest also on the rise (as evidenced for example by numbers taking further maths A-level and our own undergraduate admissions up by 20% this year).Jan 22, 2014
