A former student has shed new light on the numbers game at Chevalier College.
Dr Geordie Williamson taught more than 200 Chevalier students about maths through the concept of the internet on February 6.
Dr Williamson discovered his love for mathematics at Chevalier, and after he graduated in 1999 went on to achieve his PhD in Pure Math.
From there, he became the youngest staff member at Sydney University’s Faculty of Science as Professor of Mathematics.
“What I hoped to communicate to students during the lecture was the playing with ideas and perhaps coming up with things that could change the world,” he said.
Teacher Tom Schymitzek said Dr Williamson’s lecture was a rare and exciting opportunity for Chevalier students.
“Dr Williamson’s lectures are designed to engage and inspire those students likely to pursue further study in mathematics beyond secondary school,” he said.
Dr Williamson’s former mentor, Fr John Franzmann also attended the lecture.
