What Are The Chances MWS

We hope you can join us for this interactive maths workshop for S2-S3 students, presented by Heriot-Watt University and SCHOLAR!

We'll explore how we can apply maths and probability to scientifically measure the chances of events happening, and how we can combine the probabilities of different events together. We'll also take a look at how we can use these ideas to solve an unusual mathematical conundrum called the Monty Hall Problem!

Date & Time

Thursday 1st October at 5.30pm-6.30pm
