Mathematicians in Schools

Today the OC received a visit from our Mathematicians in Schools (MiS) partner, Dr Jarad Martin.

Dr Jarad, who works at the Calvary Mater Hospital, has been involved in the MiS program for several years and volunteers his time to share his enthusiasm and expertise in mathematics with our students.

During today’s session, students learnt about Isaac Newton and Einstein and their importance in the history of science and mathematics. Dr Jarad also shared an interesting story about the mathematician who solved the Poincare Conjecture and we looked at fractional dimensions and examples of fractals in nature.

A huge thank you to Dr Jarad for visiting us today. We look forward to seeing him again next term.
