Maths Week England
This week to celebrate Maths Week England, across the campus, creative problems (including one involving Mr Smith’s odd socks) have been solved by students with other activities and presentations exploring Mathematics taking place too. We would also love to involve you the former students of Kingswood. Therefore please see below one way we would like to help our students see the importance of Mathematics. We sincerely hope you can spare a few minutes to help us create something really useful for our students.

"Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe." - Galileo Galilei
As Galileo elegantly describes, Mathematics provides a universal language for understanding and describing the natural world. It is fundamental to various fields, including science, technology, engineering, economics, and even everyday problem-solving. Mathematics teaches logical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, fostering a foundation for intellectual development and analytical thought. Its applications are vast, contributing to advancements in diverse areas and enhancing our ability to comprehend and manipulate the world around us.
Some of you may have been taught by me in the past and some may even remember some talks we organised way back in 2007. This short survey seeks to explore how different people use Mathematics in their daily lives. It is hoped that Kingswood Mathematics Department can use this information kindly received from alumni and members of our wider community to create a booklet which showcases why Mathematics is such an important part of the curriculum and comprises a huge part of the toolkit that enables scientists to model and explore the world around us.
