Maths is challenging but fun, honest!


A day of brand new challenges seeking to build understanding, confidence and application in further areas of maths, seeking to develop all the basic skills to become a more effective and competent mathematician.

But don't worry if you've not been able to attend past masterclasses. This is for you too. There are so many activities to try for the first time, and many new ones to further extend your learning.

Extend your mathematical knowledge and your application of maths skills to solve a whole range of challenges.

Topics will include the four functions of maths; also, algebra, probability, shape and measure, number logic and function and much more. Build your confidence and skills in reasoning and discussing when proposing your solutions to the problems and tasks.

Join us for a day of fun mathematical activities and games seeking to challenge, inspire and stimulate the budding mathematician through a whole range of challenging problems, designed to develop a stronger foundation in maths. Work individually and with others to be both challenged and guided to become a stronger and more confident mathematician.

It's never too early to enjoy maths and agree that 'maths can be fun'!
