2021 will be our 31st Year of MEM Masterclasses!

Please note that whilst we will make every effort to run the 2021 series, we may need to cancel if the COVID-19 situation deteriorates in the Autumn Term.

Teachers may nominate up to four pupils they think will benefit from the activities, and the pupils should be in Year 8 or 9 during 2021/22.

What are the MEM Masterclasses?

The Masterclasses materials provide an excellent opportunity for able and enthusiastic pupils to explore a range of mathematical ideas. Topics covered are very varied, including fractals, logo and turtle graphics, origami, codes and ciphers, probability games, number magic, mathematicians, mechanics and juggling.

The 2012, 2015 and 2018 series of MEM Masterclasses were visited by a colleague from the Royal Institution who spent the day with us. Our activities were mentioned in the Royal Institution Spring 2013 Newsletter which you can view here
