Numberphile Live

Maths Fest is privileged to host Numberphile Live again this year. Numberphile is a YouTube channel all about numbers, from the smallest number of clues needed to solve a sudoku to the largest number ever used in a mathematical proof. The channel has fans around the world and over 2.5 million subscribers.

Join mathematician and regular Numberphile presenter Dr James Grime as he presents some of his favourite mathematical nuggets, and ask your own questions to the presenters of Numberphile! 

This will be an energetic maths improvisations session even people who have never seen Numberphile will enjoy.


Maths Slam 2019

Maths Fest is all about the students, and so they should get some stage time as well. Schools can nominate a student or pair of students to come up and present for up to 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 2019. There will be certificates for all students involved.

Maths Slam is part of Maths Fest at the Piccadilly Theatre, London and part of Maths Fest in Birmingham. If you’ve booked for either of these and we haven’t already been in touch to explain about how to apply for a place in the Maths Slam, then please email us. Places are limited so not all schools who apply are selected.
