Paris brings out the maths in Year 8

39 students went on the trip which included:

  • the science museum where students conducted a number of intense mathematical investigations;
  • a full day in Disneyland analysing the speed and force of roller coasters;
  • measuring the height of the Eiffel Tower and understanding the mathematics which  were fundamental in its construction and structure, 

In order to put all of this into practice, the Year 8s were challenged to build the strongest structure.

The leader of the trip, Miss Gannon, said: "A great time was had by all. The students were impeccable and their attitude towards mathematics was exemplary!"
