Maths Week Scotland is a Making Maths Count initiative which promotes maths and numeracy throughout Scotland – aiming to get people involved with mathematics, from children and young people to carers and parents. During Maths Week schools are encouraged to take part in maths challenges and Strathclyde Science Scouts couldn’t wait to get involved.
We had a fantastic week showing students the uses of maths and statistics. All schools involved were very welcoming, and the students were engaging and keen to learn. I was particularly pleased how many schools got involved with us, having twice as many activities to run compared with last year’s Maths Week."
