This course is aimed at students taking A-level Mathematics or an equivalent qualification. We hope to increase the students' enjoyment and understanding by illustrating the beauty and power of mathematics.
Each day there will be talks, problem sessions and hands-on activities based on mathematics and some of its modern applications. The chief topics for the two days are:
Tuesday 27 June: How to Count

There will also be tours of the campus and its facilities, short quizzes, and question and answer sessions with current undergraduates and staff. The programmes for each day are different, so that you can attend on Tuesday, Wednesday, or both.
Overnight accommodation in single rooms on campus is available for those coming on both days, at an inclusive cost of £28 for evening meal, bed and breakfast. Further information will be sent to students requiring accommodation.
Further details, including the application form, will be sent to schools and colleges early in 2006.
