This morning Year 7 & 8 students from Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys and Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls participated in a new exciting enrichment programme – MESME Maths Circle.
Dr D Vaccaro led the first session where students began work on enhancing their mathematical ability. The course encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.

Participating in Maths Circles will develop your child’s mathematical reasoning and expand their mathematical curiosity, as well as refining their technical knowledge and skills. Your child will follow a precisely sequenced and carefully structured curriculum.
