Mrs Parry and Mr Harrison run Jaguar Maths club on Thursday from 3:15 until 4:30 pm.
Jaguar Maths's aims are simple; to help raise standards of achievement in mathematics, to help motivate students generally, to show students of all abilities that maths can be fun and that there is a reason for doing it, helping them consider taking up careers in engineering wherever possible.
Using tried and tested cloud-based software that simulates the setting up of a racing car, students, working in small teams, complete a series of STEM relevant tasks in an effort to produce the perfect car. This virtual car is then entered into a competitive race in the hope of winning it. The Challenge also involves students racing against teams from other schools and countries. We hope the competitiveness of the Challenge will keep students focussed for months!
