2022 will be our 32nd Year of MEM Masterclasses!

Teachers may nominate up to four pupils they think will benefit from the activities, at a cost to the school of £25 per pupil. The pupils should be in Year 8 or 9 during 2022/23 and must not have attended a previous MEM Masterclass series.

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
