The Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses are a series of events designed to encourage young people in the art and practice of mathematics and to develop a sense of enjoyment in the subject. These classes are not intended to match the school curriculum but, instead, to stimulate the pupils’ mathematical interest and widen their knowledge.

The Strathclyde Series of the Mathematics Masterclasses is hosted by the University of Glasgow. It runs for 6 weeks in the autumn term, starting at the end of October. Each Saturday morning a different speaker is invited to share their favourite aspect of mathematics, which could be an interesting game they've played with, a part of their research, an unexpected connection between maths and another subject, or a beautiful application of maths to everyday life. Classes are highly interactive and a great opportunity to develop problem-solving skills.
