Maths Masterclass by Dr Colin Wright
On Wednesday 7 March Dr Colin Wright visited RGS to deliver a maths masterclass to the Lower Sixth Form further mathematicians. Students looked at various areas of mathematics and culminated the masterclass by calculating the distance to the moon using makeshift pendulums made from phones and pencil cases.
Dr Wright also delivered a talk to the Fourth Form on the Mathematics of Juggling. As well as entertaining us with impressive juggling tricks he showed us a mathematical system to recording juggling tricks which has helped devise new juggling tricks over the years.
