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 will return 23 September - 29 September 2024 with the theme Maths Tales.

Last year we had over 300 schools from every Local Authority take part in Maths Week Scotland and this year we would love to see even more schools get involved. Put your school on the map and become an official Maths Week Scotland school for 2024!

Read our announcement of this year's theme for some initial ideas on how to interpret Maths in Tales, and check out our Ideas for Your Classroom. Or get further Ideas and Inspiration from the resources and case studies in the Schools section of our website.

This year will also see the return of our Maths Week Scotland competitions: Daily Challenge, Maths wi Nae Borders, Maths Inside, Sumdog and Scotland Rocks.

Finally, if funding is what you need to take part this year, take a look at the Schools Enrichment Fund.
