Carter Community School students put their numeracy skills to the test at Oxford University event

Maths matters! That was the message when a group of Year 9 students from Carter Community School attended a special conference dedicated to numeracy at Oxford University.

The event was aimed at teenage girls, helping to highlight the importance of maths in a modern society, with its multiple uses ranging from deciphering animal’s feelings and coding credit card details to helping in the fight against Ebola.

Making their mark at the conference were Carter’s Danielle Hustings, Cassidy Winter and Abbie Healy – all members of the school’s Gifted and Talented Club who used their skills to solve a particularly difficult challenge called ‘American Billions.’

Commented Carter Community School Principal Sam Davidson:

“It’s so important to celebrate the role women play in shaping the world through the application of mathematics. The Oxford University event was an excellent way of highlighting this and helping to inspire the next generation, whilst giving our students the chance to showcase their numerical skills.”
