The event is held on a Saturday to avoid problems with cover.   It is priced so that schools can afford to send two members of staff (about half the price of a typical LA course) - staff who enjoy the day’s training together, and are more likely to discuss and implement what they have experienced on their return to school.

The cost of the day is: -

£70 for members of The Mathematical Association, (all members of a school with Institutional Membership are entitled to the members’ price.)

£95 to non-members (you will receive a £25 voucher redeemable against membership.  

Publications from The Mathematical Association will be on sale on the day.

We provide a lovely lunch and refreshments, and do everything possible to make it a great day out for those who attend.

The feedback on last year’s sessions was excellent.  Please do consider sending at least one member of staff, as it is rare to have so many experts in the field of primary mathematics together for the day.  It really is an opportunity not to be missed!  

Event flyer not yet available.

We reserve the right to change the programme – there may be more session leaders! 

Primary Maths Challenge

Primary Mathematics Challenge

The PMC is a nationwide challenge for pupils who want to get involved in some interesting and stimulating mathematics. Aimed at the top 60% of pupils in Years 5 and 6 England and Wales, P6 and P7 in Scotland, and Years 6 and 7 in Northern Ireland, the PMC is taken by tens of thousands of children each year.
