Year 11 Maths Enterprise Day

On Monday 8th October and Tuesday 9th October, the Year 11s took part in Maths Enterprise Day - where they experienced the development, production and investment stages of business.

They gained investment in their company by producing a catapult that could fire over 4 metres 10 times, then had to mass produce their catapults to make as much money as they could for their business. Some teams worked brillantly producing high quality catapults at a huge profit. 

In the afternoon, they invested the money they had made so far in our stock market - the excitement and buzz round the room was fantastic to see and we can congratulate several members of year 11 for becoming millionaires!
