Numberphile Live

Numberphile is a maths youtube channel, but with over a million subscribers it features some of the most popular videos on the internet. Go on, ask your students, they will have heard of it. Run by Brady Haran, it stars James Grime and Matt Parker.

To recreate the experience of a Numberphile video, James and Matt will take maths suggestions from the audience and talk about them in front of a camera while writing on brown paper.

In other words: it is an energetic maths improvisations session even people who have never seen Numberphile will enjoy.

Maths Slam 2018

Maths Fest is all about the students, and so they should get some stage time as well. Schools can nominate a student to come up and present for up to five minutes (we recommend three minutes!) on any maths topic they find interesting. The Maths Fest celebrity speakers will choose their favourite and declare them the winner of Maths Slam 2018. There will be certificates for all students involved.

All schools need to submit a video of their students’ presentation for selection in the final. If any schools are bringing a lot of students and want a guaranteed place, send us an email. We figure if a school is prepared to run their own Maths Slam competition to choose their school representative, we want to make sure they do get to perform in the final.
