Inter-School Maths Battles

A maths battle is a debate competition between two opposing teams, when students solve mathematical problems and present their solutions to the scrutiny of their opponents (see more detailed description here). 

Inter-School Maths Battle is a bigger event based on the same idea. It is run in two-stages for up to 16 teams invited from different Maths Circles across London, and from different local schools.

We strongly encourage school teams to participate in our intra-circle battles (see dates on this page) before attempting participation in the Inter-School Maths Battle. 

If you are interested in having your school team invited to any of the Battles, please fill in this form.

About Maths Circles and Maths Battles

Maths Circles are weekly extracurricular maths sessions for students in school years 7–11. The sessions are led by students of Mathematics from some of the leading UK universities. Maths Circles delve into topics that promote the art of problem-solving, nurture structured thinking, and cultivate a passion for mathematics. Participation is free of charge.

Maths Battles are debate competitions between two opposing teams. Students are not only required to solve a given set of mathematical problems, but also to present their solutions clearly and defend them under the scrutiny of the opponents.
