The Maths Academy Interactive is a five week sequence of interactive lectures that begins on Wednesday 14 November. The programme is for Year 12 and 13 students and aims to give students a sense of what university mathematics is like in a zero pressure environment. The maths is purely recreational and nothing is required other than showing up.

The sessions take place every Wednesday from 4:30pm to 5:45pm in Lecture Theatre 2 of the Hicks Building at The University of Sheffield.

The Lectures will be in the following areas:

  • 14th November - An Introduction to Topology: The Euler Characteristic
  • 21st November – An Introduction to Analysis
  • 28th November – An Introduction to Sets
  • 5th December – An Introduction to Knot Theory
  • 12th December – Mathematical Beauty
