Last Friday, all the maths A-level students eagerly headed to Westminster for a series of lectures by university professors on the applications of maths in the real world. One of our favourites was about antibiotic resistance and how maths can be used in science research to find treatment strategies. However, there was everything ranging from stocks to space, and history to video games. It was fascinating to learn about the real-life uses of skills we learn in the course like differentiation and the careers that maths opens up.
