Students from local secondary schools have today completed a Further Maths Masterclass, under the expert supervision of Coulsdon College specialist A Level Maths teachers. Seven students from schools such as de Stafford, Cheam High, Oasis Academy and St Mary’s spent the morning exploring a new A level topic, Complex Numbers, before using everything they learnt to put together a Tarsia Puzzle.
