As part of the Mathematics Department’s continuing links with the Lancaster University School of Mathematics (LUSOM), students from 11A were visited by lecturers to discuss college entries and their upcoming events, revision sessions and visiting speakers.
Firstly, pupils at PGHS have been invited to join the LUSOM ‘Revise +’ programme which is a set of 12 online revision sessions aimed at high achieving pupils in mathematics. These will focus on GCSE topics which have been covered in lessons, such as surds, trigonometry and quadratics.
LUSOM have also offered “Extend” sessions designed for high ability KS4 pupils aimed to increase Mathematical thinking and understanding. This is ideally aimed for those students who want to continue their studies in mathematics beyond GCSE level.
Finally, LUSOM are continuing to have a number of high-profile guest speakers who will talk about some of their favourite mathematical topics. The three lectures offered last year were well attended by PGHS pupils and well received by those involved.
