Host a Maths Circle at your School

Discover how to run a Maths Circle in your school.

The Edinburgh Maths Circle has been an immensely popular event over the past few years. In 2018, thanks to funding from the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust and Edinburgh City Council, we have begun a programme to spread the Maths Circle initiative widely across Scotland. 

Our aim is to loan our resources out to schools and provide training and support so teachers can host their own Maths Circle events at their schools or in their local communities. 

On Saturday 2nd March 2019 we will host a training event for teachers.

Participation is free, but booking is required. Please book your ticket here.


A similar training session took place in March 2018; that event has proven to be successful and very well received. The flyer and slides from that session are both available below. 

If, after attanding the training, you are interested in borrowing our resources please fill in this form and Francesca Iezzi will call you back. If you do not hear anything within a couple of weeks, feel free to contact Francesca Iezzi by email, or preferably by phone.

As an example, you can read about the Maths Circle recently hosted at Preston Street Primary School with our resources.
