Edinburgh Maths Circle
The Edinburgh Maths Circle is a free drop-in session where children aged 5 to 16 and their families can join in with exciting mathematical activities, games and puzzles. Students and members of staff from the School of Mathematics will be on hand to help out, and tea, coffee and juice will be provided.
To get an idea of the kind of activities you'll be able to have a go at, take a look at some of the following, courtesy of NRICH.
