We have a lively programme of outreach activities working with schools and teachers including a range of talks for schools and events.
Talks for schools
We offer a wide range of talks on mathematics, statistics and theoretical physics. These talks can be delivered online or, when appropriate, in person either at your school or as an inward visit to the University. An example of an online can be seen below.The majority of talks cover A-level and GCSE material but we also offer talks for younger students such as on the mathematics of bubbles and soap films.
In July 2021 we ran a 2.5 day long online summer
school to support student learning and we support other events such as the
Festival of Physics in Plymouth.
Resources for schools
- Posters and leaflets
We also have various posters and leaflets for schools. One of our most popular is the formulae required for A level Mathematics. This is available in A1 poster size (for your mathematics classrooms or a handy A5 leaflet designed for your A level students. Other material covers careers in mathematics and, of course, the brochure for our mathematics degrees.
Staff and undergraduates have made a number of podcasts on mathematical topics which you may find useful in your teaching or as revision aids. You can find them on our YouTube page Mathematics with Plymouth University.
