Schools

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

Maths Week Scotland will return 27 September - 3 October 2021 with the theme Our World. Discover the maths behind understanding and tackling the climate emergency as well as explore the natural world around us.

Last year we had 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. Get inspiration and ideas from teachers who have wowed students (and school staff!) in previous years.

2021 will see the return of our Maths Week Scotland competitions: Deputy First Ministers Daily Challenge, Maths wi Nae Borders, Maths Inside, Sumdog, Mangahigh and Scotland Rocks.

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