Tarquin MEI Prize 2013
Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), a national mathematics education charity, is working with Tarquin, a publisher and supplier of educational books and materials, to offer an annual prize for post-16 students. The competition is to design a video, animation, GeoGebra file or some other electronic artefact that communicates mathematical ideas being used to solve an engineering or another practical problem of some kind. You can find full details about the competition by following the Prizes link from the Tarquin website at www.tarquingroup.com. You may also wish to consider extending the work that goes into the entry into a larger project that could be used as part of the requirements for the Extended Project qualification. Further details about this qualification are available on the MEI website at www.mei.org.uk/EP
