What does telling the time have to do with sending secret messages? This interactive event is designed to investigate this very question. During the Maths Horizons Day, we will explore how keeping time involves a different way of counting and how this can be developed to enable us to safely send data across the internet. During this taster day, students will have the opportunity to explore practical applications of mathematical principles and explore how mathematics is taught within a Higher Education setting. Students will also have the opportunity to speak with current students, gain help with UCAS applications and personal statement writing and have a free lunch.
