Presentation – Year 13, Sam Harding
This week’s presentation was on the topic of infinity and the different types of it that occur throughout mathematics.
After a brief historical introduction, Sam showed us the famous tortoise and hare problem. That was followed by a discussion of improper integrals and fractals which provided an opportunity to introduce some of the Year 12s to calculus and the exponential function. The talk finished with a brief discussion of aleph-null and cardinality of different sets, followed by planning for our lecture trips in the coming weeks.
