Maths Week takes place from 10 to 16 September 2018 with events across Scotland for schools, families, communities and adults. Whether you’re a maths whizz, or haven't thought about it since your last lesson at school, there is something for everyone.

Maths is all around us. We use it to plan our holidays, check football league tables and spot fake news.

Maths Week takes place from 10 to 16 September 2018 with events across Scotland for schools, families, communities and adults. Whether you’re a maths whizz, or haven't thought about it since your last lesson at school, there is something for everyone.

You can find out how guitar strings could solve the big problems of the universe, the role of maths in fighting cancer, or how we hold data in our genes.

Families can play maths games and puzzles in Edinburgh or experience Murderous Maths in Orkney.

Alternatively, you can release your inner artist and capture the maths inside our lives with this photo competition.

Schools will be completing challenges, finding out about maths in the workplace and cracking codes throughout the week.

Looking for inspiration for your school? Get your whole class involved with this year's Maths wi nae Borders competition, now launched and open until 1 October. Also check out our additional schools resources and videos below.
