      My favourite part of maths is when you can apply it to some really weird and wonderful things! For example, we can use maths to model the flow of fluids inside penguin eggs, the movements of sharks when hunting, the activity in your brain, the spread of disease, to make great animations like in Disney films and to learn about asthma (my research topic). Specific topics in maths that I enjoy include something called differential equations as well as mechanics and statistics. What is your favourite part of maths?
