Maths Inspiration

Inspiring speakers demonstrate how school maths relates to interesting applications in the 'real-world'.

Maths Inspiration

Do your GCSE and Sixth Form students ever ask you questions like: "When am I ever going to need Pythagoras?" or "What's the point of statistics?".

Our live, interactive shows are a brilliant way to demonstrate how school maths relates to the real world, with the country's top maths presenters from the world of engineering, academia, the finance sector and more.

Our shows usually take place in theatres but this year they are taking place online.

We charge schools £78 (inc VAT) for access to a show. There is no limit on how many students from the school can take part. We also offer a season pass for £180 which gives the school access to all five shows (live or recorded).
