Strand 12ii: Maths ROOM 321 | 10:45 to 11:30

Simon Singh, Science Writer

@SLSingh

During this session, best-selling author Simon Singh outlines two current projects that he has pioneered, aimed at encouraging more students to achieve excellence in maths from Year 7 upwards. The Parallel Project offers free online maths worksheets each weekend, which are automatically marked and which are designed to stretch the most ambitious and able students. And the Top-Top Set Maths Project works with schools to subsidise an additional maths set (beyond the normal top set), with the intention of consistently stretching the keenest maths students, also from Year 7 upwards.
