It was an enriching learning journey and I learnt a lot about how math can be used in our daily lives. This has allowed me to better understand the usage of math in both our daily lives and also in various industries. The session on MAPLE was really interesting and fun although I found it a little complicated at the start. This meaningful experience has allowed me to be able to make a more affirmed choice on whether I'll take Mathematics in University and even which course. I would really encourage students who are unsure of what further studies they would wish to pursue in University to participate in this learning journey.

I have always thought that even when one moves on to the university level, the math faculty will still be about solving lots of tricky math questions and learning more topics. After going for the math tour, I realized that there are so many areas one can go into, be it finance or computational math. Through the talks by a few professors, I learnt and found out how math can be applied to our daily lives and in our future job sectors if we go into the finance sector.
Lastly, the handson computer session was also quite fun and made me realize that we can actually use technology to work out math problems. Overall, this math tour has indeed opened my eyes to the limitless possibilities of math and helped me have a better understanding of university life and the lessons I’ll have to go through if I have to choose math as my university course in future.

Interacting with students in Math society give me insights into life as a Math major student and lecturers were informative.
It is a very fun experience and if given another chance, I would still sign up for it.
This event is indeed enriching and worth going for.
This programme is useful as it allows me to have a better understanding of Mathematics at university level.
Students from Meridian Junior College
The talks were interesting and informative, the tea
break was sumptuous and the handson session on Maple was very useful. I hope
to make this visit a yearly affair as part of our college's H3 programme, as H3 Mathematics students are the most likely
candidates to take up the mathematics course.

The NUS visit was very fruitful. The modules helmed by the various lecturers
gave me a better understanding of the complexity of mathematics in
university. Although the program was
short, it gave newcomers a sneak peek into the course. Another highlight was
the tour with current students. They shared their stories and how they used the
facilities to enhance their learning. After this learning journey, I am
resolved to take up mathematics in university."

The Faculty tour and discussions with senior students
provided indepth knowledge on what mathematics is about, an understanding of
the distinction between pure and applied mathematics, as well as the career
prospects. The handson practice for the Maple software was eyeopening and
enriching. The learning journey prepares us ahead as we stepped
into certain
parts of the university content that we can learn in the future."
