Mathematics And The Imaginary Triangles
The Higher Level Mathematics students from Grades 11 and 12 attended a fascinating talk by Professor Serge D’Alessio from the University of Waterloo in Canada on Friday 10th November. The title of the talk was “Chasing Imaginary Triangles” and covered Geometry, Number Theory, Imaginary Numbers and Calculus. He also talked to them about applications of Mathematics in real life including how it is used in modelling the weather. Grade 12 students were able later to apply what they had discussed in their TOK lesson.
