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, 2018 and 2021 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 RI newsletter 2013
