HCH Maths Day

How long is the theatre? How many grams of sugar are in a can of coke? How much change do I get for £1 if I need to pay 70p? How much of a ruler can be pushed over the table edge until it tilts and how does that change when I put one, two, three rubbers on it? How many moves does it take to all swap places? What does the number 13 look like? How many butterflies can you find in the picture? What is flag semaphore? Will it just be a line graph?

If questions like these can be heard in the theatre throughout the day it can only mean one thing: it’s HCH Maths Day! Once again different activities encouraged all students from Nursery to Year 11 to use their mathematical skills and analytical thinking.

A big thank you to the Sixth Formers who came in especially early to help out and to the Friends of HCH for lending us the penguin tumble game, which made the Fun Fair even more exciting.
