Improve your problem solving at a hands-on conference

Maths plays a vital role in life/physical sciences, engineering and the social sciences too. The Summer problem solving conference is a day-long event comprising lectures and workshops. If you are interested in studying maths at university, sessions on mathematical proof and rigour will be invaluable.

This next problem solving day will take place on 28 June 2016.
