The Edinburgh Maths Circle is an opportunity for children aged 7 to 14 and their families to join us for a couple of hours of fun and stimulating hands-on mathematics.

To facilitate interaction and better tailor the activities, this Maths Circle will be split into slots:

- first slot: 10:00-11:00- for age 11-14

- second slot: 11:30- 12:30- for age 7-11

You are welcome to attend either of the slots, or both, according to your preference and the age of the children. The event is free to attend, but booking is required. Please follow the links below to book a space:

- booking page for first slot: 10:00-11:00- for age 11-14

- booking page for second slot: 11:30- 12:30- for age 7-11

Prior to the virtual event, a selection of Maths problems is sent out to participants. Participants are encouraged to try the problems in advance.

During the virtual event participants are able to join different e-rooms, where Maths Circle hosts explain how to solve some of the problems. Participants can ask questions via the chat, listen in as the host talks about ways to think about the problem, and then move to a different e-room if they want to try a different problem.
