Maths increasing in popularity

Last Sunday BBC2 aired an interesting programme about the ‘International Mathematical Olympiad’ which saw the best young mathematicians around the world compete for gold, silver and bronze medals. The popularity of maths is growing fast with more A level students than ever before choosing to study the subject. 'Beautiful Young Minds' showed how intense the international maths competition can be!
