    When I grow up, I want to do maths research, but my school has people doing Year 10 work experience. Seeing as I'm still Year 10, I was thinking that maybe I wouldn't know enough maths to be able to do maths research for my work experience. Does anybody have any ideas for alternative work experiences for people like me, or do you think maths research would be suitable? Thanks!

    It's very unlikely you'll be able to do maths research for your work experience, unless you live within extremely close proximity to a university, though even then a maths lecturer would probably be way to busy to supervise you.

    I recommend just looking around at local businesses and calling up somewhere that takes your fancy. Something like an accountancy firm would probably be fine. For year 10 work experience you won't be trusted to do anything above general office work, other than possibly a bit of number crunching using Excel.
