Most sessions we offer are designed to fill a standard one hour lesson, but can be made slightly shorter or longer if necessary. Sessions can be delivered as large group presentations or as smaller hands-on workshops. There are a few workshops that can run over a longer period of time. 

Number of students

Workshops are ideal for class groups, and are usually delivered to groups of up to 40. However, in some circumstances we may be able to accommodate more students in a workshop. 

Presentations are suitable for audiences of any size, provided all the students can see and hear clearly. However, some of our presentations include a hands-on aspect, which may not be suitable for groups of over 100. The students can either be seated at tables or in theatre-style rows.

Age groups 

We have sessions suitable for age groups ranging from KS3 up to KS5. Information about the sessions from outlines which Key Stages are appropriate for each session, and unless otherwise indicated in the literature, the content can be adapted for all ability levels. Some KS3 workshops may be adaptable for upper KS2.


Our sessions cover topics ranging from topology, number theory and probability to magic and maths in popular culture. Below is more about some of our favourite sessions!

Matt's Favourite Session: Adventures in the Fourth Dimension

Matt and Klein bottle

Matt thinks the fourth dimension is generally underappreciated and he aims to change that with this whistle-stop tour of some of the highlights of his book ‘Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension’. This is Matt’s favourite session mostly because it gives him an excuse to get disproportionately excited about his favourite shape, the Klein bottle: a shape that only exists in the fourth dimension.

Suitable for: upper KS4 and KS5 

Groups of any size

Zoe's Favourite Session: Mathematical Magic

Zoe Mathematical Magic

This session shows how mathematical thinking can be used to reverse-engineer and understand magic tricks. This is Zoe’s favourite session; students don’t just leave being able to perform and understand impressive mathematical magic tricks, they also gain a general appreciation for the power of logical thinking in making the seemingly impossible, possible!

Suitable for: KS2 up to KS5 

Group size: Up to 120 students

Rob's Favourite Session: The Maths of Money Games

Rob speaking

When teenagers leave school, it’s inevitable that they will encounter maths when dealing with money, so Rob's favourite session is about as relevant to teenagers as maths can get.  Even better, by using money games, they can learn important lessons about investing, risk-taking and avoiding being scammed, in an extremely engaging context.

Suitable for: KS4 

Any group size

Katie's Favourite Session: Shape and Smoke Rings

Katie Shapes and Smoke Rings

Having studied and researched topology at university, which is the study of shapes, Katie's favourite session is Shapes and Smoke Rings. Featuring ideas, puzzles and concepts from university-level topology, linked back to school-level maths, this session will stretch students to think about familiar shapes in new ways.

Suitable for KS2 up to KS4/5 (with some more challenging puzzles put in for the older groups!)

Any group size (with smaller groups, more hands-on activities can be done by the students).
