The University of Liverpool Maths School is more than its pupils and teachers. As the first specialist maths school in the North, we are committed to nurturing mathematical and scientific potential across the region. We aim to provide students from all backgrounds with the tools, confidence and opportunities to achieve their academic potential. Our outreach activities are free.
See the table lower down on this page for what you can sign up for. More will be added in the next few weeks.
Next year we will be able to finally offer in person sessions through the year, as well as continuing with our online lessons.
We can also visit schools or receive visitors for a range of STEM related activities, it was great to get to visit a number of schools this past summer term and we look forward to more of this.
We also had very successful Y11 and Y12 summer schools in July which received very positive feedback.
There is no charge to take part in any of our online courses, but priority will be given to students in state funded schools in the Liverpool City Region.
For all our courses, you will need:
– a quiet place to work at home or school
– a computer or tablet that can join a Zoom meeting (microphone and camera not necessary) [if this is a problem please apply anyway and we’ll try to find a way to help]
– to be able to join our Google Classroom (you may need to use a personal Google account for this as your school account may not be able to join our classroom)
– the commitment and time to complete work set outside lessons
– pencil and paper
We have obviously not been able to run outreach activities as we would like for larger groups in our school and in other schools around the region. Restrictions are lifting and we have a range of experiences for students around the region to enhance their interest in the mathematical sciences. This includes our new STEMmaster activity which is based on the popular TV show, Taskmaster. If you are interested in this or any other outreach and want to find out more please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will shortly update this page with all we can offer schools in the region in our subjects of Maths, Physics and Computer Science.
From October 2019 to March 2020 the Maths School has held a series of classes on campus encouraging students from Years 9 to 11 to think differently about mathematics.
We have now moved to an online mode of delivery (see above)
Held during half term in October 2019 attendees spent the day on campus hearing from Headteacher Damian Haigh, juggling Merseyside mathematician Colin Wright and others.
Held during the Easter break, these school workshops were aimed at students from across the Liverpool City Region in Years 10 and 11.
In April 2019 six schools hosted the first series of Maths School’s Easter events, one from each borough of Liverpool. Over 150 GCSE students took part in activities including revision sessions, problem-solving and confidence building aimed at supporting students attain the highest grades in their mathematics GCSE.
If your school is interested in hosting an ULMaS workshop sharing the joy and benefits of maths, physics or computer science with your pupils, we can support you in delivering bespoke enrichment sessions to students from Year 5 through to Year 11.
