Event description

Mathematicians have been using computers for over half a century to provide answers to problems which require an enormous number of calculations, great accuracy and reliability.

In this workshop with Paul Hall, aimed at those students with no previous experience of C#, students will explore how computers can be used to do mathematics as they learn how to program simple games and take a nuts-and-bolts approach to solving a variety of problems.

About the speaker

Paul Hall teaches mathematics and computer science. He is an established Ri Mathematics Masterclass presenter giving regular sessions for students from year 9 up to sixth form students.
