Does learning maths change the way we think?

Café Scientifique with Dr Matthew Inglis

Cafe scientifique

Event details

It is widely believed that studying mathematics at advanced levels develops generic "thinking skills" which are useful in many domains of life. Is there any actual evidence to back this claim? Dr Matthew Inglis discusses the evidence into how studying maths develops your thinking skills, logical reasoning and/or ability to resolve problems.

Dr Matthew Inglis is a Royal Society Education Research Fellow at Loughborough University.
