GCSE Boost Videos

Teachers sometimes get the question “But where would I ever use this maths?” To answer that, MSP Wales have commissioned an exciting first series of six short videos by maths communicators. These show how GCSE maths can help you investigate unsolved problems, win at video games, make the best products, share secrets, find the distance to the horizon, and make you savvy about the National Lottery. Big thanks to Zoe Griffiths, James Grime, Ben Sparks and Katie Steckles.
