Meet Dr Jarad

Today we had our first visit from our class mathematician Dr Jarad Martin who is a Radiation Oncologist at the Mater Hospital. Dr Jarad very generously gave up some of his time today to meet and work with students on some challenging mathematical problem solving. Students explored a variety of mathematical concepts and theories such as Factorial Equations (n!) and Pythagoras Theorem and looked at the uses and importance of prime numbers.

The OC would like to thank Dr Jarad for joining us today and sharing his amazing mathematical skills and knowledge. We look forward to working with him next term.
