MEM ORBITER CHALLENGE COMPETITIONS (both MEM and LivMS)
This is our newsletter and is circulated three times a year at the start of each school term, informing schools and other interested parties about local mathematical events and talks. Current and back issues are available. These free take-home competitions are held over February half term, and are open to all Y7/8 and Y9/10 pupils respectively.  Current and back issues (and solutions) are available.
MEM MASTERCLASSES
These are for able and enthusiastic Y8/9 pupils and are normally held in the autumn term.  COVID-19 caused the cancellation of the Saturday classes in 2020 but a series of three Saturday classes did take place in 2021. Details for 2022 can be found here: MEM Masterclasses
