Hannah Fry's Mysterious World of Maths
Students are inspired by new TV series
Several students caught up with Hannah Fry’s TV series over half-term. Here is a review and two pieces of artwork inspired by one of the episodes.
I really like Hannah Fry’s Mysterious World of Maths as it tells me that maths has a lot of power! I know this because she explains everything that we enjoy doing or want to do in a mathematical way. This really intrigued me. Also, I got to know about our mathematical ancestors and how they have given us ways to understand how maths works in reality. In addition to this, she is trying to explain to us a question that hasn’t been answered for over a thousand years! This makes it very exciting to watch. My favourite part of the episode that I saw was when Hannah went on the largest zip line in the world. She is such an inspiration.
