We’re gearing up for Maths Week England 2021: 8-12 November

Posted on in News

We’re delighted to once again be partnering with Maths Week England to promote maths enjoyment for all.

We’re providing several new competitions, events and resources to engage students from KS2 to KS5, all linked to this great initiative. Some of these are being offered by the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP), which is managed by MEI, and we’ve gathered all the details together here:

Competitions

Our Visualising inequality (by hand) competition encourages to students to use their creativity to make sense of data. There are four categories. Details for the primary category are available here. Details for the categories for Years 7-8, Years 9-11 and Years 12-13 are available on the AMSP website.

We’re repeating our popular Desmos art competition, which encourages students use the power of this freely available platform to produce designs and images. You’ll be amazed at what can be achieved. This has four age categories: Years 5-6, Years 7-8, Years 9-11 and Years 12-13.

You’ll find links to resources to support both competitions on the competition pages.

Events

The AMSP is also hosting two national online events for schools – one’s about travelling in space and the other’s a careers panel that gives students the opportunity to ask questions of guests from the world of work.

Resources

You’ll find new materials to support students talking about maths on the AMSP’s Where’s the Maths in that? page. These have been specially designed with COP26 in mind.

… and so much more Maths Week England has many more events, daily puzzles, and resources available. Visit their website to register.
