Maths Week Scotland is a week of events and activity, with special events throughout 2020. Now in its fourth successful year, Maths Week Scotland will take place 28 September - 4 October 2020.

You can uncover the maths we take for granted in our lives, and see maths in a whole new light during Maths Week Scotland. Even if you haven't thought about maths since your last lesson at school, there is something for everyone.
