What do students say?

  • “I particularly enjoyed the interactive activities during the logic games session and learning about things we don’t learn in school. Magical Maths gave me a different perspective of maths, and has intrigued me to learn more.”
  • “I thought the event was a brilliant idea. It shows a variety of ways in which maths can be used. The delivery of the event was impressive and I enjoyed how each session offered something new.”
