School Mathematics Trip to Florence

Your maths school trip to Florence will allow your students to learn more about the important role maths played in the Renaissance, as well as open their eyes to the importance of maths in the wider world!

The birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence bore witness to some incredible developments in maths, science and engineering from 14th – 17th century. During the Renaissance, people began to combine science and maths in ways that had not been attempted before, leading to incredible mathematical discoveries.

Maths was used by Brunelleschi to construct the giant dome of Florence’s cathedral, while trigonometry developed into a major branch of mathematics, which can now be used to explain the angle of inclination of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Renaissance also saw the invention of some truly beautiful mathematical instruments, many of which are now on display in the Museo Galileo.
