Mathematical Education on Merseyside (MEM) is an organisation which brings together staff from the three universities in Liverpool and local school teachers, to devise, enable and promote mathematical activities throughout the region.

Don’t miss the 24-hour Mathematical Magic Live YouTube show! Starting at 9pm on Friday 30th October, it’ll be running through until 9pm the following day and will feature 48 different maths magic tricks for you to enjoy and puzzle over, presented by different special guests with a rolling rota of hosts, and supported by a team of maths volunteers. Money will be raised for charity throughout the show, and crossing over with Mark Watson’s 24h live comedy show Watsonathon, which is running at the same time. If you’d like to watch, visit 24hourmaths.com for more information and you can sign up there for an email reminder before we go live, or follow @24hmaths on Twitter for updates.
