In this lecture, Stephen will discuss the importance of some key areas of school mathematics in his research career. Starting with Pythagoras and trigonometry, he’ll take us on a journey through familiar sounding concepts, showing some surprising connections between them while building towards a model for fluid flows relevant to the aerospace sector. Stephen aims to emphasise the importance of school-level mathematics in many areas of life and will discuss how the UK needs to up its game in mathematics education for the modern digital world.
