Yesterday saw 16 Year 9 students come to the inaugural meeting of Mathematics Matters @ UTS club. 

Professor Tony Dooley gave the initial address which was on binary numbers.

Then they all went to the Data Arena for a very enlightening experience. Some were even able to use the controller. 3D glasses meant particles came whizzing past us.
