Interesting Fact - Maths

According to a study, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, teenagers in the UK would be more likely to study maths at A-level if they were told what salaries it would help them earn in the future.

(Telling students that pupils who received the information on graduate earnings were 39 per cent more likely to study maths than those who did not.

Now if they could only convince them that maths could get you onto the X-Factor, and help you become famous, the take up would be 100%.)
