26th March 2010 at 00:00

Pupils considering a career in mathematics can learn more about the wide-reaching application of the subject - in fields such as finance, medicine, risk-taking and design - at an event on April 7.

Meet the Mathematicians, to be held at the Royal Society of Edinburgh, will allow more than 100 S5 and S6 pupils to meet professional mathematicians and hear about some of the many applications of mathematics and the opportunities open to maths graduates. It is organised jointly by the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.
