LivMS MA ATM Branch

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.

Events are listed below but the branch website will have comprehensive 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.

Great Mathematical Diagrams -  with MA President Dr Chris Pritchard 

President of the Mathematical Association 2021

The talk is a journey through mathematical diagrams, some famed for their importance and longevity, some critical for the information they convey and many of them just plain clever. Join me for a look at a range of visual material from the Bride’s Chair of Euclid’s Elements to the Königsberg bridges and from Playfair’s pie chart to Anscombe’s salutary lesson, whilst also enjoying some "proofs without words" which can be deployed profitably in the classroom.
