Maths school trips to London
Right on our doorstep you may not realise how many attractions and excursions in London link to mathematical concepts for a school trip. Study the properties of 2D, 3D and rectilinear shapes at Westminster, get geometrical on the London Eye, undertake the Maths challenge at the British Museum, calculate the height of the 'Shard', consider similarity of triangles on the 'Gherkin', and have fun working out the number of windows. Cross the Thames from St Pauls to the Tate to consider the mathematical challenges engineers faced solving the legendary 'wobbling' problem of the Millennium Bridge. Combine this with the science museum & London is the perfect choice for a school Maths trip.
