In 1978 the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures featured for the first time a talk on Mathematics. Presented by E. Christopher Zeeman and entitled "Mathematics Into Pictures", it generated such a wave of interest that a Mathematics Masterclass series was set up.

Since then there have been many regional groups running master classes. You can find out more about these from the RI website:

The Juggling Talk can and frequently is given in the format of a mathematics masterclass. This usually consists of 2 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning, with a break in the middle for squash and biscuits.

In this format the first hour or so is largely demonstrations and explanations, with some activities and interactions. The second hour fades from lecture/demonstration to problems and puzzles based on the material they've seen.
