The Liverpool Branch of the MA
The Liverpool Mathematical Society was founded in 1899 and has been affiliated to the Mathematical Association since 1929.
We run a number of events, ranging from professional development activities for teachers in both the Primary and Secondary school sector, through to student competitions involving a Sixth-form Quiz and mathematical Challenges. We also organise a series of (free) popular mathematics lectures aimed at both teachers and students alike. Some events involve a small fee.
Please see the branch website www.maths.liv.ac.uk/lms.html for details of the current programme.
The venues for these meetings are usually split between the University of Liverpool; Liverpool John Moores University, and Liverpool Hope University College.

The Liverpool Mathematical Society’s PopMaths Quiz, held on Saturday 1st March 2014, was again a very successful event which attracted 147 sixth-formers in 37 teams, from 20 schools/colleges supported by 25 staff. The event was held at Liverpool John Moores University. Once again, schools and colleges throughout the North-west took part, with the major prizes awarded to:
First-prize(shared): a team from The Blue Coat School, Liverpool and a team from Winstanley College
Third prize: a team from Stockport Grammar School.
Plans for the 2015 Quiz, sometime in early March, are in progress.
