Plymouth University

1st November 2017

On Thursday 16th November 2017 Year 6 were given the wonderful opportunity to attend a Mathematics Lecture at Plymouth University.

The lecture was entitled, ‘Bubbles with Mathematics’ and we saw how bubbles are used to discuss mathematics problems – “Soap films and bubbles are beautiful but, surprisingly, they can also be used to solve problems that occur in nature, science and modern technology.” The talk explored regular shapes, modern architecture, how whales hunt and the shortest ways to connect points.
It was extremely exciting when we were put into an extra large bubble!
When we came back to school we tried to make our own bubbles with different resources.
Who knew bubbles appeared so much in our daily lives?
