1:00pm, Wednesday 10th November: OR, Maths and Money

Did you know there’s more to money than just adding up how much you have to spend or how much your bills are? Join this talk for a fascinating look at the everyday maths used by banks. We all know they charge interest on loans, but how do they decide how much interest to charge, or judge who will be able to repay their loans? John Christiansen, an expert speaker, will explain what predictive models are, and how banks use them to make important decisions. Suitable for GCSE/A-level students.
