Maths Circles & Maths Battles at Major UK Universities

Social club for maths-loving kids: brings fun & engagement into the studying of mathematics. For pupils in school years 7-11. Free of charge.

Maths Circles

Maths Circles are maths-loving learning sessions led by gifted young mathematicians aimed at the art of problem solving and structured thinking.

Maths Battles

Maths Battles are team debate competitions, where the students learn to work collaboratively, and enhance their presentation and social skills.

Who We Are

Pupils at the RGS have really enjoyed maths battles and numbers grow week on week. The problems are fun and open questions give the boys further opportunity to work collaboratively outside of the classroom as well as potentially considering mathematics from a different perspective. It is definitely something the boys look forward to on a Monday evening, the battles even more so.

Mr. Jamie A. Rizk, Maths Teacher

I think that with more people, conversations are longer and more detailed, and more time to do work and focus individually [would improve the experience]. I love it, the best maths fun ever. So lucky to be here, challenging but fun.
