Schools

What do zombie crime scenes, fancy dress parades and baking have in common? They are just some of the ways schools have got involved with Maths Week Scotland. The options are limited only by your imagination!

Maths Week Scotland returned for 2021 with the theme Our World and amazing celebrations in all corners of Scotland.

You can still tell us what you got up to and put your school on the map to become an official Maths Week Scotland school. 2021 also saw the return of our Maths Week Scotland competitions: Daily Challenge, Maths wi Nae Borders, Maths Inside, Sumdog, and Scotland Rocks.

Maths Week Scotland may be over for another year but there are plenty of inspiration and ideas for year round celebrations or to get planning for Maths Week Scotland 2022...

Finally, if funding is what you need to take part next year then look no further than the Maths Week Scotland Small Grants Fund.
