We invite everyone to the first “Red Hot Maths”on the Rooi Plein on Wednesday 15th October from 12:00 – 14:00.

It is the brainchild of the Mathematics 144 Student Assistant team. The aim is to promote mathematics and raise funds for a charity of their choice. They have chosen Funda Fundisa. It is a university initiative whereby students go to underprivileged schools to give extra lessons.

As part of “Red Hot Maths” participants pay R5 for a mathematics worksheet to complete on the Rooi Plein (don’t worry it won’t be marked!) and for a ticket for the raffle. Participants’ names and photos are recorded and will be captured in a collage we will mount in the Maths Division. The idea is to get as many people as possible thinking and talking about mathematics on the Rooi Plein.
