Maths Week Scotland

Maths Week Scotland is a celebration of the importance of maths in our everyday lives.

Maths is all around us. We use it in our daily lives when cooking tea, playing sport or deciding whether to go for that impulse purchase. It shapes our society in our voting systems and the way we use data. It even underpins the art we view and the music we listen to.

You and your pupils can uncover the maths we take for granted and see maths in a whole new light during Maths Week Scotland.

Join us for a week of events and activities, with special events throughout the year. Hundreds of schools take part each year and we provide support for teachers, including training courses, online resources, and free events and activities.

Maths Week Scotland returns for 2023 with the theme 'Maths in Motion', exploring everything that gets maths moving - from sports and dance, stop motion and animation, to engineering, dynamics, space missions and more!
