John Mighton’s Visit
Third class had the opportunity of a lifetime this week when they were given a masterclass in maths from the master himself. Dr. John Mighton is a mathematician, author, and playwright. He founded JUMP Math as a charity in 2001 to enhance potential by encouraging an understanding and love of math in students and educators. JUMP Math produces evidence-based classroom math programs that are used by about 140,000 students including the students of Scoil Mhuire.
