We recently received the following email after the event in Reading:

Many many thanks for organising the above talk. The feedback we
have received from our pupils has been outstanding. There is a
new spring in the Maths lessons! The mix between classic problems
and new ideas was superb. (Many of the kids are already learning
to juggle!! )

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Simon, Rob and Colin. Their
passion for Mathematics was obvious and contagious. Our coach left
with a real buzz afterwards. The resources on the mentioned web
sites will be invaluable to our department. I have used a few of
the starters this week and the kids have been blown away.

As a part of our commitment to making these events the best they can be, we ask teachers to complete a feedback form. One of the questions we asked was this:

"What message would you
give to the schools that
didn't come today?"

Some of the replies were: And my favourite so far:

This is the sort of experience they will remember far more
than any classroom lessons. Truly inspirational.

Until recently the events have followed a simple formula, with three speakers talking about different applications of mathematics, followed by a question and answer session. The event at Greenwich Theatre in March 2006 introduced a completely new idea:

Maths Improvisation

This proved to be a great success, and is likely to be included in future events.


There were no headings
in the main text so there
is no table of contents.
