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 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.
