High Flying Moor End Mathematicians

Well done to our Year 8 Mathematicians who visited The Runway Visitor Park at Manchester Airport on Friday 22nd April 2016.

Led by Mr Barrett, students learnt how Mathematics can be applied in a real-life context through data collection activities related to passenger numbers, take-off speeds and time zones.

Students also identified mathematical facts about various aircraft at the park and were shown around a Concorde and a McDonald Douglas DC10.
